All State Band and Orchestra Recognition

Cotter students, Gabe Welch and Viva Graff, were selected to represent the Cotter band program at the 2018-19 Minnesota All State Band and Orchestra Concert on Saturday February 16 at Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis.  They were selected out of the entire state as some of the top Tuba and Bassoon players. This is a huge accomplishment, and a testament to their dedication to music. Gabe and Viva attended a week long camp in August that ended with a concert at the University of Minnesota, and then performed again this February for a crowd of music educators and parents at the annual Music Educators Winter Conference.
