Contributed by EHS Music Director Lynda Alley:

Outstanding music students from across Washington have received top honors by being selected to participate in one of our 2010 WMEA All-State performing groups. The students listed below will join other outstanding high school student musicians in this gala event.

WMEA All-State high school bands, orchestra and choirs will meet in Yakima February 12-15. The finest high school musicians in our state will rehearse and perform in concert under the direction of wold-renowned conductors. These WMEA All-State musicians were selected through auditions to participate in this outstanding event, which is sponsored by the Washington Music Educators Association.

Many professional musicians credit their All-State experience as crucial in their decision to choose music as a career. Thousands of others whose career paths took them in other directions have great memories of participating in this inspiring and motivating musical experience and claim that it was a life-changing experience for them.

Well known Washingtonians who have participated in past years' WMEA All-State groups include The Seattle Post-Intelligencer's Pulitzer Prize-Winning editorial cartoonist and columnist David Horsey, 2008 National Teacher of the Year Andrea Peterson and jazz saxophonist Kenny G.

Please take the time to congratulate the following Enumclaw High School students for this prestigious accomplishment. There were 2900 auditions for All-State this year.
