PHS musicians had a busy spring. In mid-April selected members choral, band and orchestra joined others from around the state to perform at the music educators in-service conference in Nampa.
The event was held at the Northern Nazarene University.
“This was a great honor for these students and weighs heavily when they go to apply for music scholarships,” said PHS teacher Paul Seare.
The students invited from PHS were: Kevin Payne, tenor I; Collin Swainston, tenor ll; Madylin Olsen, alto II; Melissa Shaffer, soprano II; Bethany Jensen, alto I; Audrey Scheonfelt, alto II; Kennedy Welker, alto II; Bryan Seare, tenor ll and French horn. Twins, Natalie and Noell Durfee played violins; Sam Seamons, double bass; and Hannah Chalfant, French horn.
Earlier in this month students from the band, orchestra and choir went to the state solo contest in Boise. Those going had to earn a first or second place in the district contests held in March in various places in the Gem State District.
Those who went to state were: Melissa Shaffer, mezzo-soprano; Madylin Olsen, alto; Chelsea Martin, soprano; Bryan Seare, French horn; Kevin Payne, percussion; Hannah Chelfant, French horn; Sam Seamons, double bass; and Noelle and Natalie Durfee, violin.
