The Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) Middle Level State Honors Music Project invited the following Templeton Middle School eighth grade students to participate in the state honors band and orchestra:
- Ella Chevalier – french horn;
- Mia Traverse – alto saxophone; and
- Ashley Velasquez – clarinet.
This is the sixth consecutive year that Templeton students have been invited. Students went through a rigorous audition process held in April and were recently notified of their acceptance. Only 300 students were chosen to participate from more than 1,200 auditions throughout the state.
When a selected student is unable to attend, students chosen to be high alternate have the opportunity to perform. Templeton eighth-grader Jacob Hubred, percussion, was selected high alternate.
The Wisconsin State Honors Music Project offers talented youth the opportunity to rehearse and perform with nationally-known conductors in choir, orchestra and band. All honors groups will perform Oct. 28 at the Wisconsin State Music Conference.
