Trinity Academy hosted the Central Plains League Music Contest March 7. Conway Springs choir, Cardinalaires, and band all competed, and soloists for both choir and band also performed.

Cardinalaires received a 1 rating for their song “Ave Maria”. Cardinalaire boys and girls ensembles both got 2 on their songs. Choir was given a 2 for their song. Additionally, band received 1 from all the judges for its songs.

Sophomore Maddie Koester received a 1 for her vocal solo.

“I sang ‘Lass From The Low Countree and Poor Wayfaring Stranger,’” Koester said. “I wasn’t really nervous for my solo because I have sung at contest before. When I got to find out my score, I was really happy with it.”

Like Koester, many of the soloists received high ratings on their solos. Sophomore Nathan Ohl, is one of these many students.

“I was very nervous for my solo,” he said. “I got a 2 on my solo. Before I found out my score, I thought I did not do the best. The judge was very tough, though; he only gave out one 1.”

The choir members said they thought they did well, despite missing a singer.

“I think we did a lot better than we thought we were going to do,” senior Hannah Ray said. “I felt reasonable with our score, considering we were missing one of our two guys. I think that we will improve a lot by Regionals, as long as we aren’t missing the guys’ part.”
