Success in Sioux Falls

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Congratulations to the Spirit Lake vocal jazz ensemble and Spirit Lake Music Factory show choir on excellent performances to finish their competition season at the Sioux Falls Washington Best of Show competition.

The vocal jazz ensemble received a Superior rating -- and earned second place in competition. The show choir earned third place in their class and then earned the right to perform in the evening finals. They received the fifth-runnerup trophy over all of the competitors at Sioux Falls Washington. Also congratulations to Will Fuelberth on being selected as an outstanding soloist and receiving a $3,000 music scholarship from Morningside College --renewable for four years -- if he chooses to attend. A great way to finish the season.
