Congratulations to the Corona del Sol Wind Ensemble and the Corona del Sol 6th Hour Percussion Ensemble for BOTH being selected to perform at the Arizona Music Educators Association Conference in featured honor concerts on February 2-3 (more details to come). Only 6 groups were selected to perform from the state, including Altadena MS Band, Highland HS Orchestra, Rincon/University Jazz I, Boulder Creek HS Wind Ensemble, and the 2 Corona groups. Our Wind Ensemble last performed at the Conference in 2017 as a clinic group, and in 2013 as a featured concert group. The Percussion Ensemble last played at the Conference in 2007.
From the ABODA President:
“It is with great pleasure that I write to inform you and members of the Corona del Sol Wind Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble that you have been selected by the ABODA Board to perform at the 2018 Arizona Music Educators Association State In-service Convention at the Mesa Convention Center.
This singular honor is the direct result of superior teaching and much hard work and effort on behalf of your students. Your students and entire school community should be very proud of this accomplishment. Your convention performances will be attended by music educators and administrators from across the state and will showcase the wonderful talents of your ensemble. Additional information will be forthcoming from Mr. Eric Haenfler, and Bill Richardson, convention coordinators, concerning specific performance date and time. Once again congratulations and best wishes for every continued musical success this school year.”
