Saint Mary’s hosts music contest workshop


Saint Mary’s University hosted a music contest workshop for high school musicians in the region on March 17. The event was presented in a master class format with students performing for each other and receiving feedback from Saint Mary’s music faculty members.

This new event helped student musicians prepare for upcoming spring solo ensemble contests in Minnesota and Wisconsin where they’ll be critiqued and scored while competing for outstanding musical performance awards. Participants learned valuable musicianship skills through their own performances and were able to observe, collaborate, and reflect on other student performances.

The event was sponsored by the Saint Mary’s Music Department and will be offered again next year. Contact Dr. Janet Heukeshoven, workshop coordinator, for more details at
