This past weekend in Reno was the Nevada All State Orchestra and Bands. The best of the best playing professional repertoire with world class conductors. Student participation in these groups is reward unto itself. The conductors, not knowing the students before and only gauging by the way they perform over 2 days, get to pick 1 or 2 to receive scholarships to various summer camps. In the orchestra, Dr. Thomas Taylor Dickey (conductor) chose Ethan Tajalle (principal viola) and Alex Vakov (principal oboe) as his only winners, both from Coronado High School. Bravo to them!
