Congratulations to Madeline Ptak, Riley Hamon, Caden Barnhart, Carlee Adams of Freeport Elementary School, and Kinsley Craig of West DeFuniak Elementary for being selected by audition to represent Walton County in the Florida Elementary Music Educators Association Regional Honor Music Ensembles in Gainesville, Florida! These students attended an all day workshop and rehearsals, and performed in concert on Saturday evening, October 27, at the University of Florida!
Madeline, Riley, and Kinsley performed as members of the North Regional Elementary Chorus, while Caden and Carlee performed as members of the North Regional Elementary Orff Ensemble. It was an exciting day of learning and polishing new music, developing and reinforcing good vocal and instrumental music technique, and meeting other student musicians from throughout the state. The culminating concert was fabulous, and the students, their parents, and directors shared an amazing experience that will inspire them to greater levels of musicianship!
Freeport Elementary music teacher is Angela Saltsman, and West DeFuniak Elementary Music teacher is Nathan Hight.
