Coeur d’Alene High School and Lake City High School music students were recently honored for their orchestral and melodic talents at the Idaho State Solo Competition earlier in May.

Anthony LaFrinier of LCHS was named state tenor champion. This is the second year he has won the award. Jared Monaghan, also LCHS, was named state timpani champion.

CHS student Kaylee Wood was honored with first-place on string bass, and Cody Howerton of CHS received first-place for baritone/bass voice.

Other students honored for their musical talents include Katelyn Slavens, second-place in flute; David Smith, second-place in baritone saxophone; Sarah Keene, third-place in euphonium; Madi Daigh, third-place in clarinet and sixth-place in oboe; David Bjelland, third-place in violin; Carlin Mitchell, third-place in baritone; Ryan Fitting, fourth-place in cello; Stephanie Wolf, fifth-place in mezzo soprano; and Andrew Asper, sixth-place in oboe and 13th-place in trombone.

The district level awards have allowed the students to qualify for the state contest.
