CHS Wind Ensemble wins ISSMA gold

Back To Front Page


Chesterton High School recently qualified to participate in the ISSMA State Concert Organization Championship event this past Friday and Saturday, May 4 and 5 at Lawrence Central High School and Pike High School in Indianapolis.

The CHS Wind Ensemble received strong numbers for their efforts, which earned the group the highly coveted “Gold” Superior Rating for both their stage performance and their Sight-Reading performance. Their three selections for their stage performance included a dramatic and somewhat unusual work entitled “Commemoration Overture” which was composed by Elliot Del Borgo to mark the 50th Anniversary of the United States Nave Band. The group’s second selection was an emotional hymn-like composition by composer Jan Van der Roost entitled “Canterbury Chorale”. The band ended their stage performance with “AFRICA: Ceremony, Song and Ritual”, a diverse and energetic piece based on the primitive folk music of West Africa. In addition to the need for a large array of percussion instruments, this musical work requires the students to sing, chant, hum, and perform “native vocals”.

Members of the CHS Wind Ensemble include: Keyon Allen, Leam Armstrong, Hailey Ayala, Abby Billings, Kelsey Bolton, Ethan Botts, Aaron Brookhouse, Colin Campbell, Andrew Cernick, Alyssa Cole, Adam Davis, Carol Dilts, Gavin Dooley, Tristan Dooley, Andrew Engel, Laura Estridge, Garrett Fairbanks, Andrew Figg, Alexander Fine, Sailor Franklin, Toby Franklin, ĘDavid Gerth, Josh Guzek, Anthony Hampton, Aidan Healy, Nathan Herr, Ryan Herr, David Hodgkiss, Mark Hodgkiss, Henry Hoham, Abigail Joesten, Nate Kravitz, Holly Kittredge, Anthony Langley, Julia Larson, Jessica Maatouk, Bella Marchetti, Zane Mauke, Shaye McCarthy, Clare McNicholas, Anthony Miskus, Violet Needham, Eli Ontiveros, Max Owens, Abby Palmer, Bryan Pamintuan, Nolan Poczekay, Megan Pratt, Gwen Sanders, Sydney Sarver, Delaney Schavey, Greta Schmahl, Roxanne Schwab, Lauren Sensibaugh, Chris Sexton, Emmerson Stobbe, Payton Stobbe, Hunter Torres, Rebecca White, Jacob Winland.
