The Band Students at the State Ensemble Festival Landon Paulsen, Blake Lipinski, and Levi Paulsen
By Easton Petersen
Woodbury Central senior Blake Lipinski, and juniors Levi and Landon Paulsen were selected to prepare and perform solos at the State Ensemble Festival April 12 at Iowa State University in Ames.
According to Blake, working hard and practicing every day got him into the festival and made him a better soloist.
Participants perform a solo with an accompanist before a judge certified by the IHSMA (Iowa High School Music Association). According to Mr. Petersen, each student selects a solo from well known and high quality music literature.
“Students benefit by conquering increasing technical and musical demands that differ from normal band literature,” said Mr. Peterson, who teaches instrumental music.
