South Washington County Schools students selected for All-State music ensembles
Posted on 05/01/2018

Twenty-one students from East Ridge, Park and Woodbury high schools have been accepted to All-State music ensembles for the 2018-19 season. Each student was selected by recorded auditions from hundreds of their peers around the state. They will join other selected students for a week-long summer camp in August on a college campus, and will work with a collegiate guest conductor, ending in a formal public performance. The groups will reconvene in February of 2019 to perform as part of the Minnesota Music Educator’s Association’s Mid-Winter Conference.

Congratulations to all those selected!
