Several Elsberry High School band and choir members competed in a state Solo and Ensemble Festival Saturday, March 9 at Fort Zumwalt East High School. During this competition students perform a solo for a judge who in turn rates the student on a scale from one to five, with one being the best. Students who earn a one or superior rating get to attend the state music festival in Columbia on April 26. Those scoring a one rating at this contest were Tracey Beck, flute; Sarah Daly, alto saxophone; and Becca Jansen, choir. Receiving a two, excellent rating were Shiloh Lynn, choir; Maggie Spratt, tenor saxophone; and Anne Heintzelman, bassoon. The EHS band and choir are under the direction of Tom Speers.
