Special to the Tribune

Students from all three middle schools in the Humboldt Unified School District participated in a band concert in Gilbert earlier this month and did very well.

Several students from Glassford Hill Middle, Bradshaw Mountain Middle and Liberty Traditional schools took part in the Arizona Band and Orchestra Directors Associations Area Concert Festival at Highland High School on Saturday, March 2.

Seventh-grader Nick Annibale from Glassford Hill earned first chair trumpet by beating out the competition by 30 points. Nick Bragg, from Liberty Traditional School, and Kaleb Lyonnais, from Bradshaw Mountain Middle School, will compete May 4 at the Northern Arizona Regional Band Festival in Flagstaff.

At the All-Region Festival for high schools, an individual event where students audition to be in the best of the best band, orchestra or choir for the region, Bradshaw Mountain High School placed nine students this year - up from eight last year and five the year before, said Band Director Chris Tenney.

Three students placed in the orchestra and six in the band. In

All-Region Orchestra are: Ashley Harrington, violin II; Joseph Timmons, violin II; and Dorian Bruch, viola. All-Region Band members are: Nathan Lau, clarinet II; Kaley Greenman, clarinet II; Trystin Schaffer, clarinet II; Ashley Scholes, clarinet III; Ricky Beswick, trumpet III; and Seth McFadon, trombone II.

At the Area Concert and Orchestra Festival, the BMHS Orchestra earned a rating of Good, same as last year. The Concert Band earned an Excellent, thereby qualifying for the State Festival in late April. Tenney said he thought this was only the second time in the school's history, the last time being about five years ago.

Two high school music teachers were nominated for Prescott's Buckey Awards as Best Arts Educator: Amy Van Winkle and Chris Tenney.

Fifteen students from the Bradshaw Mountain High School choir represented the school in the Northwest Regional Honor Choir. They had to go through a rigorous audition process, which included a solo and musicianship (sight reading) test, and were among the top 100 students placed in the choir. The students are: Lorissa Doherty, fourth chair soprano; Lorelei Fyfe; Cassandra Norman; Brittney Cleveland; Kailey Schevers; Jessica Lau;

Cassandra Beswick, eighth chair alto; Brianna Reneer; Isabel Krueger; Cheyenne Belone; Alec Serna; Cameron Jackson; Mitchell Keating, third chair tenor; Nathan Lau; Taylor Walters; and Caleb Hunt, first alternate.

At Liberty Traditional School, eighth-grader Devon Bonelli recently wrote a play titled Tragedy of Basil. The play earned third place in the Prescott Center for the Arts Young Playwrights Festival. Even more exciting, Tragedy of Basil was performed at the Prescott Fine Arts Theatre on March 3 for the public.

At the Northern Arizona Acting Festival, BMHS students garnered several awards. Lindy Slater and Alexa Slater earned a Superior rating in Scene and qualified for state and national competitions.

Earning an Excellent rating in Scenes and Monologues are: Mike Danner, Brandyn Cozad, Neal Griffin, Sarah Gibson, Sarah Ireland, Emily Bell, Danielle Card, Logan Dixson, Jordan Becker, Paul Schrum, and Isaiah Baca.
