Student of the Month

 Ridgeland HS Trumpet Ensemble


The Ridgeland HS Trumpet Ensemble was featured on the recent UTC Trumpet Ensemble and Low Brass Ensemble concert on March 31.  The group was led by Austin York and is self-run.  They gave an impressive performance of O Virgo Benedicta by Andreas de Silva, and then joined the UTC Trumpet Ensemble for a performance of Within Sacred Walls by Erik Morales.  These high school students are so inspiring!  Front row, left to right:  Hailey Baker, Annie Evans, Tiffany Anderson, Candace Dean, Jarrod Fountain; back row:  Tyler West, Austin York, Jasmine Buckner, Brett Knight, Seth Cope, Steffan Hulgan, and Kaleb Hull.
