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.
Congratulations to the Student Council led by Mrs. Kay Carpenter for all of their efforts this year to bringing awareness to distracted driving and seat belt usage initiatives!
