Seven Willmar High School students to participate in all-state music groups.
WILLMAR — The Willmar Senior High Music Department announces that seven students were selected for the 2020-2021 All-State Ensembles.
According to the announcement, All-State is an intensive musical program for some of the very best musicians in Minnesota's high schools. Each year, students audition for the all-state performing group in band, choir and orchestra.
The following students from Willmar High School were selected:
- Selected to an all-state choir were Anna Kerstetter, soprano II; Noah Vander Pol, tenor II and Erin Vruwink, alto I.
- Esmeralda Garcia, B-flat clarinet, was selected to an all-state band.
- Selected to the all-state orchestra were Caroline Becker, cello; Meghan Weiss, bass; and Malaya Yague, violin I.
Although students will not be able to participate in person as usual, there are plans to perform in a virtual festival event. They will rehearse via Zoom twice and then will record a virtual performance with their ensemble.
All-state bands will perform on Feb. 13, all-state choirs will perform on Feb. 20 and all-state orchestra will perform on Feb. 21.
All students will rehearse and perform under a nationally recognized conductor and will record one or more of their assigned pieces.
