Thanks also go to our judges for the evening, Eric Miller (Orchestra Teacher at Madison West High School), Erica Ruppert (WSMA Program Director), and Aaron Baldauf (Music Teacher at Glacier Creek Middle School).
Without question, it is wonderful to hear an evening filled with so many excellent performances by students here at MHS. All of the participants in this year’s competition are to be commended for their dedication and hard work—every one of them should be proud of his or her accomplishments. The judges commented on the great number of excellent performances. It was mentioned that most schools would be pleased to have merely a fraction of the musicians who appeared last night at our auditions. Middleton High School and your community are honored to have you here. The MHS Music Department extends our congratulations to all performers—you are all winners!
