Snell, Kivisto, Golde perform in honor band festival at St. Olaf
Three students from the Alexandria Jefferson High School band performed in the St. Olaf Honor Band Festival on November 9 at the St. Olaf campus in Northfield. The students were Amelia Golde, trumpet; Samuel Kivisto, baritone saxophone; and Carly Snell, French horn.
To be selected to the festival, students were nominated by the band directors based upon their academic and musical merits.
The students had the chance to work with Dr. Timothy Mahr, director of bands at St. Olaf, and Dr. Elizabeth Peterson, director of band at Ithaca College.
The festival culminated in a concert, which featured the St. Olaf Norsman Band, the Festival Band and the St. Olaf Band.
