The June Buchanan School’s music director, Wendy Saylor, and accompanist Beth Ann Bowers worked with JBS students in preparation for the KMEA (Kentucky Music Educators Association) Vocal Solo and Ensemble Music Festival. JBS seniors Tessa Amburgey and Sadie Haigler, sophomores Elizabeth Bentley and Madison Martin, and freshman Charity Cook competed and made several accomplishments in their vocal solos and duets.
Tessa Amburgey and Charity Cook received a mark of proficient on each of their solos. Elizabeth Bentley, Sadie Haigler, and Madison Martin were given a mark of distinguished on their solos. Madison Martin will be going on to a state festival held in May. Charity Cook and Elizabeth Bentley achieved a distinguished on their duet, and Tessa and Sadie captured the same score on their duet.
About the accomplishments of her students, Ms. Saylor said, “It was my pleasure to work with these talented girls in preparing for the vocal festival. They are fun to work with and willing to take the challenge.”
