Six Blaine High School (BHS) students recently competed in a solo and ensemble competition, and two will move onto the state competition in April.
On January 25, six BHS students competed in the San Juan Music Educators Association’s high school solo and ensemble competition, which took place at Sehome High School in Bellingham.
The participating students were freshman Byanca Holguin (flute), sophomore Stephanie Boczek (saxophone), and seniors Samantha Boczek (flute), Charles Streeter (piano), Eli Yost (euphonium) and Sydney Thrall (bassoon).
Streeter placed first on piano, and Yost placed first on euphonium. They will move onto the state competition on April 25 in Ellensburg. Samantha Boczek scored high enough in the highly competitive flute category to become an alternate for the state competition.
“They all represented BHS with distinction,” said Dorita Gray.
