Woodwinds Students Receive Awards at 2020 MMTA Competition

November 17, 2020

The Missouri Music Teachers Association hosts an annual statewide competition, and this year Truman was well represented with numerous students receiving awards in the Collegiate Woodwind category.  These students worked above and beyond by learning three contrasting solos, paying the extra audition and accompanist fees, and making/uploading their audition videos.  It was an extremely beneficial learning experience and everyone who competed received detailed feedback from the judge as well. In the Lower Division category, freshman Jennifer Jones (clarinet) was selected as Winner, freshman Brett Barger (clarinet) received Runner Up, and sophomore Taylor Howard (clarinet) was awarded Honorable Mention.  In the Upper Division, senior Vivian Scott (saxophone) received Runner Up and junior Anna Manzelli (clarinet) was awarded Honorable Mention.  In the Graduate category, Emily Zuber (flute) was selected as Winner, Yang Zhou (saxophone) received Runner Up and Haozhe Shi (saxophone) was awarded Honorable Mention.  Congratulations to all the Truman woodwind students who competed this year!  (Here’s the state MMTA website with the full listing of competition results: https://missourimta.org/results/)Students left to right: Emily Zuber, Brett Barger, Taylor Howard, Jennifer Jones
