Several Hudson High School students are among Wisconsin musicians involved in the Wisconsin School Music Association’s 2008 High School State Honors Music Project as it gears up for another year of music and education.
Hudson students involved are Bjorn Carlson, Mixed Choir, Bass; Monica Deloy, Treble Choir, Soprano I; David Gillingham, Orchestra, Bb Trumpet; Erin Maher, Treble Choir, Soprano II; Dominic Meincke, Orchestra, F Horn; and Cori Vought, Orchestra, F Horn.
“The High School Honors Project is a collaboration of teachers’ and students’ hard work and talent. The best student musicians and music teachers from around the state join one another in order to be challenged to work harder than ever before by nationally recognized conductors. The result of this synthesis is an unequaled educational experience and a moving musical performance,” said Tim Wurgler, WSMA program director.
More than 1,600 students in grades 9, 10 and 11 auditioned for 421 positions in the WSMA High School State Honors Music Project ensembles. The auditions were held in seven sites across the state in February.
The students selected to participate in the project will meet for the first time at a summer camp at UW-Green Bay. The High School Honors Orchestra, Treble Choir and Jazz Ensemble will meet June 14-17, and the High School Band and Mixed Choir will meet June 18-21. All honors students reconvene in Madison in late October to perform at the annual Wisconsin State Music Conference. The concerts celebrate the achievements of Wisconsin youth musicians and are open to the public.
