Three Lincoln Middle School musicians to participate in statewide concert | Arts & Culture
Three 8th grade musicians from Lincoln Middle School in Clarkston have been invited to be a part of an all-state music event in Vancouver, Wash.
Austin Trail, Cooper Knutson and Alexis Ruddell will perform Feb. 16 with about 90 other middle school musicians in the Washington Music Educators Association All-State event.
The event “offers students the unique opportunity to rehearse and perform with the state's most talented 7th and 8th grade band and choir students,” a news release from the Clarkston School District read.
Students were selected after submitting audition materials to a statewide panel. Trail was named to the Junior All-State Baker Band, Knutson to the Junior All-State Mixed Choir, and Ruddell to the Junior All-State Treble Choir.
Linda Torgerson, Lincoln Middle School's music director, is slated to participate in the Northwest Music Convention in Portland before rendezvousing with students in Vancouver for the event.
