On Friday, April 20th the Centura High School Music students had a very successful day at District Music Contest hosted by Gibbon High School. Altogether Centura had 12 entries in the contest, which is the most the school has had in several years.

The ratings of each entry were as followed:

Overall, there was a lot of improvement from all of the Centura students since last performing their selections at their pre-district concert. This was particularly noticeable in Centura’s large ensembles.
Centura’s instrumental students were taught by Mr. Logan Gregory, vocal students were taught by Mrs. Kimberly Killinger, and the two piano soloists were both from the studio of Mrs. Beverly Weibe-Brown.
Gibbon High School did an outstanding job hosting, everything ran very efficiently, and they had great communication with the music directors.
