A huge CONGRATULATIONS to Leah Koltes for earning a spot in the MN All-State Symphonic Band!   Like everything else, All-State is a different experience this year.  Leah is participating in virtual rehearsals and sectionals.  Each player will record their parts, and in May, the Band will gather again for a virtual Watch Party of their concert.  

Leah is a Senior at the Battle Lake School.  She has been a percussionist in the Band since the 5th grade.  She has been very active in extra opportunities to participate, including Jazz Band, the Heart of the Lakes Community Band, MBDA Honor Bands, and Solo/Ensemble Contests.   Consistent practice has made Leah a standout musician who is well deserving of this honor!
