We'd like to extend a big congratulations to Pete Jameson and Joshua Karki on an excellent all-state concert this February in San Antonio, TX.
Joshua Karki received all-state honors after a number of auditions starting with regionals in Graham, TX last December and then Area in Argyle, TX in January. This highly competitive contest consists of performing scales and musical etudes intended to challenge the strongest students musicians in Texas. This was Joshua's third consecutive year to make the ATSSB All-state band as a clarinetist. Joshua will be graduating in May.
Pete Jameson is an alto saxophonist and junior at Eastland. He qualified for the ATSSB all state jazz band after competing at regionals in September and recording a state audition at that event after the announcement of results. Only two alto saxophnist in class 1A-4A are accepted into the ATSSB all-state jazz band. This is his first time to make the all-state band. Pete studies weekly with Dr. Andrew Stonerock at Tarleton State University.
The students who make the all-state band perform a concert at the Henry B. Gonzales Convention Center in San Antonio, TX at the Texas Music Educators Association yearly convention.
