CLEARFIELD — Student musicians from Clearfield Elementary have represented the Orioles at several events this spring.

On March 5, Niko Estrella performed a xylophone solo at the Creston Elementary/Middle School Solo/Ensemble Contest and earned a “I” (excellent) rating.

On March 11, Estrella was joined by Hunter Morgan to sing in the Southwest Iowa Choral Directors Association Elementary/Middle School Honor Choir Festival in Treynor. The festival featured the fifth- and sixth-grade choir under the direction of Jennifer Wagner and the seventh- and eighth-grade choir under the direction of Lucas Johnson, and culminated in a concert that night.

“These two young men spent much extra time in and out of school rehearsing and preparing for these events,” Clearfield Music Educator Julia Weisshaar-Mullin said.  “All of us at Clearfield School are very proud of their hard work and dedication and their good representation of all the students at our school.”

Clearfield School will present the annual Spring Fine Arts Festival 6:30 p.m. May 8 in the school gym. This is the final program of the school year and will feature award-winning artwork and music performances from all Clearfield student musicians.
