KUDOS from Veronica

We would like to recognize Victoria Arora (age 14) for her hard work. She attends Sunnyslope High School and participates in their marching and concert band. This past year, Victoria auditioned for the Northwest Regional Honor Band and earned third chair in the ensemble. In addition, with encouragement from her Flute Teacher, Mrs. Katie, she entered the Arizona Flute Society Competition in April. She earned third place in the Junior Division with a beautiful piece "Donjon-Offentoire." She also enjoys volunteering at the middle school she attended where she helps younger students with the flute.

Congratulations, Victoria!!

KUDOS from the Petersons

Congratulations to Danielle Peterson for graduating with highest honors from Seton Catholic, and for earning a full scholarship to NAU where (among other things) you'll study flute under Dr. Emily Hoppe-McKay! Good luck with your level 10 performance assessment with the Royal Conservatory this week! Love, Mom & Dad
