Fifteen Douglas High School band students who auditioned for the Nevada All State Ensembles were selected. These students represent the top musicians in the state of Nevada. They will be participating in a two-day virtual event in April.
They will work with a guest conductor, and participate in master classes specific to their instrument or voice part. At the end, each student will be required to submit a video of themselves performing their part to the selected piece. These videos will all be merged into a single video creating a virtual performance of their ensemble piece and posted on Youtube.
DHS students participating are:
All-State Band: TJ Golobic, Trumpet; Joshua Gneiting, French Horn; and Rachael Galahan, Euphonium
All-State Choir: Sopranos: Hannah Palmer, Sarah Jongsma, Ali Kent, Ava Goodlander Altos: Sydney Hastings, Freddie Baker, Amara Brown, Taylor Jensen. Tenors: Antoniio Fuentes, Justin Ericsson, Michael Capps and Colton DeSimone

Mr. DHS will be playing it drive-in style, Douglas High School leadership announced.
Senior Class President Aoife Brooks said the event is scheduled for March 27 at the high school parking lot.
Brooks said that an April 24 date has been set for the school’s junior and senior proms.
“While it may not look like a typical prom, we are excited to offer our seniors and juniors a fun and safe event,” Brooks said. “We can't wait to see our senior class and DHS students together.”
Organizers of the Support our Seniors group thanked Maverik for the senior treat last week. Round Table Pizza will be offering a special to seniors through graduation.
Next week, Coffee on Main will be providing a deal to seniors.
“Local businesses and the members of this community have been extremely supportive of the class of 2021,” organizers said. “A round of applause to this wonderful community we call home.”
If anyone knows a high school senior they would like featured in the spotlight, have the student submit the form found on the Class of 2021 Google Classroom page.
