Grangeville musicians attend All-State conference
GRANGEVILLE — Five Grangeville High School students recently returned from Pocatello after rehearsing and performing in the All-State choirs.
Senior Josie Laufenberg was a member of the 2016 All-State Treble Choir, singing soprano I. She will compete next week at the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. Senior Alexandria Perry, juniors Shelby Wonnacot and freshman Michael Nelson were all members of the 2016 All-State Mixed Choir. Junior Marissa Kennedy was scheduled to attend in the Mixed Choir as well, but illness prevented her attending. Students were accompanied by their director Kathy Stefani who presented a workshop on methods to motivate and sustain growth within a music program entitled, “Build It and They Will Come.....Now What?” Stefani was nominated for Idaho Music Educators Association president, with voting later this spring.
