Ketchikan High School will be participating in the Region V Music Festival hosted in Sitka on April 6-8. Over 600 music students from across Southeast, Alaska will be attending to perform concerts, solos and ensembles, and engage in music clinics. Kayhi’s Jazz Band, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble, Vocal Jazz, Concert Choir, and Women’s Choir will all be performing.
Junior Thomas Brooks is feeling stressed, but thrilled about performing in Jazz Band, Wind Ensemble, and Choir.
“I’m definitely stressed because of all the music that I have to learn,” said Brooks. “But I’m also very excited to be performing all the music because it shows the hardwork and dedication. All the bands and choirs put a lot of time and effort into making the pieces their own. I’m mostly excited to perform my ensembles because I’ve put a lot of time into them.”
Senior Kinani Halvorsen is excited to perform in her last Music Fest.
“I’m really looking forward to being able to perform for the Wind Ensemble for the last time,” said Halvorsen. “I feel really good about performing in Jazz Band because I really like the set of music we have and I think everyone has a piece that they really enjoy.”
