Chaparral Boasts Several Students on All-Southern California Music Ensembles

 Ian Kim and Sunny Cai, clarinetists,  will represent Chaparral  Middle School at All-State this February in Fresno at the California All State Music Educator’s Conference. They competed against hundreds  of their peers from across the state in December for a prestigious seat in one of the two middle school bands.  Ian will join the Junior High Symphonic Band and Sunny will perform with the Junior High Concert Band. These students have shown enormous dedication and discipline to reaching the level needed to be chosen for this opportunity.  “I am excited because of the experience I will have and how it will benefit my future career in music and just the opportunity to learn,” says Sunny Cai. Students will work with renowned conductors over three days as they prepare for performances on February 17.
