Thirty-three students from across the state were selected for this two-day event. Rehearsals started on Friday as students were able to work with renowned jazz instructors Ryan Stahle, director of bands at Mitchell School District, and Joel Shotwell, regional jazz performer and educator. Small workshopstyle classes also provided students with a great opportunity to listen to jazz techniques as they were performed by regional Jazz artists. Rehearsals resumed Saturday morning and concluded in the afternoon with a 3 p.m. concert at Mitchell Performing Arts Center. Damien is the first student of Yankton Middle School to be selected for this prestigious event for the second year in a row. On Friday, March 1, and Saturday, March 2, Damien participated in the 20th Anniversary Middle School All State Band in Huron, joining more than 200 musicians for the weekend-long event. Middle school students are selected for this prestigious event by submitting audition CDs the first part of December. Each student’s audition consists of at least three scales and two musical selections that display the student’s musical tone and technical ability. All recorded auditions are listened to and adjudicated by South Dakota music educators. Students were selected based on their final scores from more than 500 submitted auditions. From the qualifying final scores, two band ensembles are formed. Students worked with South Dakota State University’s Dr. Jacob Wallace, as well as composer and conductor, Tyler S. Grant this year. Grant was commissioned a work special for our celebration this year! This is the third year Damien has been selected for this honorable event. He was one of only 18 students recognized during the concert for their accomplishment this year. A 3 p.m. concert was held Saturday at Huron High School. Mrs. Wenisch, YMS Band Director, stated “Damien is a great student to work with. He’s very focused on where he wants life to take him and is not afraid to let music be an active part of his life. His commitment to the music program and his musical ability are top of the line and I am privileged to have him in the YMS band program.” Wenisch accompanied Damien to both musical events, where students were given opportunities to have an entertaining experience while growing as a musician.
