Templeton violinist honored

Templeton Middle School eighth grader Stephanie Petersen was honored for her participation in the Wisconsin School Music Association State Music Festival held April 26 at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee.

Performing on violin, Stephanie received a “very good” rating for her solo performance. The rating was achieved by receiving “excellent” or “very good” marks in the categories of tone, music interpretation, intonation, expression and articulation. Petersen qualified for the state festival by receiving the highest rating possible at a district music festival held in early April that featured student soloists and ensembles from throughout southeastern Wisconsin.
