Templeton students earn State Honors

The Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) Middle Level State Honors Music Project invited the following Templeton Middle School students to participate in the state honors band and orchestra:

  • Carly Elkin – clarinet;
  • Madeline Jaworski – clarinet;
  • Margaret Kidd – clarinet;
  • Marisa Lehner – flute;
  • Hiranmayi Swaminathan – flute and
  • Brock Volden – tuba.


This is the eighth 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 1,100 auditions throughout the state.

When a selected student is unable to attend, students chosen to be high alternate have the opportunity to perform. Templeton students selected as high alternate are Margaret Beverung – percussion prioritized alternate, Colleen Flynn – clarinet, Will Hartman – trumpet and Annalise Schulz – alto saxophone.

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. 26 at the Wisconsin State Music Conference.
