Staff reports

Ten students in addition to the Madrigal Singers at Douglas High School who earned superior ratings and command performances at the Solo and Ensemble Festival on Saturday at Western Nevada Community College will perform their winning pieces tomorrow night at the Honor Band and Choir Concerts in Gardnerville.

The Northern Zone Nevada Music Educator’s Association Honor Band and Choir performances will be held at Pau-Wa-Lu Middle School in the Gardnerville Ranchos at 7:30 p.m. Thursday. The honor band conductor will be Mike DeLage of Sparks High School and the choral conductor is Tom Fleming of Churchill County High School.

Admission to the concert is $2 to help defray the costs of purchasing music for the concerts and the guest conductors’ fees.
