Excellent ratings go to

The saxophone quartet of Beehler, Hurrle, Ahlrich, and Libbesmeier received a “Best of Site” award as well, beating out 24 other performances for the honor.  But the highest honors go to Andi Schiefelbein for her clarinet solo and Andi and Shelby for their clarinet duet; not only did they receive superior ratings, but a PERFECT SCORE of 40!

A tremendous amount of appreciation also goes to Lori Miller for lending us her time and incredible piano accompaniment skills. Thank you so much, Lori!
