Choir is ‘Superior,’ students place at state contest

ELLENSBURG — The North Kitsap High School Choir received Superior ratings and three students placed at the State Solo and Ensemble Contest at Central Washington University. The contest was held April 26-27.

North Kitsap High School sent more than 20 students to the state competition. The competition began at Bremerton High School and the students with the highest scores in each category competed at the state level.

In addition to the choir’s Superior ratings, Alena Haws and Talena Kelln placed second in women’s small ensemble and Kelly Lansafame placed third in alto.   NKHS received Superior ratings from judges in the large mixed group category, small group category and solo category.

“These students need to be recognized for this accomplishment,” said Gwen Pennington of NKHS Choir Boosters.

“Silvia Kauter has worked with her students to help them excel and compete at the state level. The students in the choir program love music and love to sing because Silvia is a wonderful talented teacher.”

She added, “Music has influenced the students in the choir program. The North Kitsap School District is facing budget cuts. The music program has shown positive results and helped many students.“
