OSAA Soloists

The Sherwood High School Band had 7 students performing 8 performances total at the OSAA Solo Contest this past Saturday, May 3rd. Of those 8 performances the following students placed in the top five, something which is remarkably difficult to achieve as the field is highly competitive:

Brian Swihart, French Horn – 1st Place Image
Kenny Ross, Euphonium – 2nd Place
Kenny Ross, Trombone – 2nd Place
William Karceski, Trombone – 4th Place
Madeleine Scypinski, Oboe – 4th Place
I would like to applaud these students and all students who had the honor of being selected to perform. Student Musicians who achieve at this level do so on their own initiative. They are self directed and motivated. I had the simple pleasure of sitting in the audience and clapping. Bravo to all of our OSAA musicians!
