Four talented musicians from MTHS’s band and orchestra program have been selected to perform with the Washington All-State Music Ensembles in Yakima later this month.

Daniela Coretezzo (trumpet), Braden Ryder (trombone), Sonita Chen (violin), and Pierce McCann (viola) will join the state’s finest high school musicians for rehearsals and performances.

The All State Band is highly competitive with students from all over the state. Within their own districts auditions are sent in, hearing back in November as to whether or not they made it. Including Terrace’s four musicians, Edmonds School District has a total of 14 student musicians performing in All State.

Terrace’s music program had also recently competed in the regional Sno-King Solo and Ensemble Contest in which a total of 11 groups competed together and six individual students competed.

The competitions range from large group ensembles to individual solos in which judges place their performance among other groups/individuals.

Ryder won the trombone section and the Tarrace Percussion Ensemble won the Large Percussion Ensemble.

The Chamber Orchestra placed second alternate in their competition, Large String Ensemble. Among all of ESD’s high schools, there were a total of 25 placements throughout all the contests, 13 of whom were winners in their competitions.

These winners will go on to Ellensburg in April to play at the state competition.
The success of the Terrace music program is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the students, teachers, and community members who support it.

The program provides students with a high-quality music education from mentors and helps them to develop their musical talents and appreciation for the arts.
