Staff and Friends:

     The Sumner High School Band Program had 20 events performing at Saturday’s Valley Region Instrumental Solo-Ensemble Contest, held at Puyallup High School.  This is an event that students can voluntarily participate in, as they prepare and then represent Sumner High School in both their solo playing as well as a variety of ensembles.  This Regional event is a qualifier to the State Solo-Ensemble Contests, held at Central Washington University in late-April.  I am very proud of these students and their hard work – all of our Sumner HS entrants received either a Superior (I) or an Excellent (II) and a large number of them were selected as the best in the Region and will be going to State (including Percussionist Austin Smith, who will be going in 3 separate events, an incredible achievement.  Congratulations to all of them for their outstanding efforts.   Here is a list of the soloists and groups that participated and their results:
