4 WHS Musicians qualify for prestigious 2016 All-State Music!

Holdsworth selected for All-State Band; Callan, Redding & Redding for Choir (school record!)

For three days, students from all over Nebraska gathered in Lincoln for All-State Music and the Nebraska Music Education Association’s (NMEA) yearly conference.

Students are selected for this yearly event based off of a difficult audition process. This year, over 2,000 students from across Nebraska auditioned for the different All-State Ensembles. 

WHS junior Sydney Holdsworth was selected for the band on alto-saxophone, and she received 3rd chair placement! This was her 2nd year qualifying for the All-State Band!

WHS juniors Kristin Callan (soprano), Isaac Redding (bass 2), and Aaron Redding (bass 2) were selected to be in the 2016 All-State Choir. Have three All-State Choir members selected from Wahoo is a school record!

These students enjoyed the opportunity to rehearse with nationally recognized clinicians, along with the state’s best high school musicians.  

On Friday, November 18, the All-State ensembles finished their week with a performance at the Lied Center in Lincoln. 

This event is an extremely rewarding musical experience for all involved, and a huge honor for the students that participated. Well done!
