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!
