CPMA students shine at Disneyland music competition

CPMA students perform They say Disneyland is a magical place where dreams come true.
For nearly 200 students from the Creative, Performing and Media Arts (CPMA) Middle School in Clairemont, their participation in the annual Southern California Music in the Park celebration really did make their dreams come true.

Facing tough competition from as far away as Idaho and Texas, CPMA’s Advanced Orchestra and Choir captured not only first place in their division but best overall middle school orchestra honors as well during the competition on June 1, 2013.

In addition to its amazing orchestra performance, CPMA captured several other top honors throughout the event, including: first place Women’s Choir, first place Treble Choir, second place Advanced Band, and second place Jazz Band. Several CPMA students also took home top honors for their outstanding work, including: middle school Instrumental Soloist, Andrew Nathenson; middle school Vocal Soloist, Molly Hafer; and middle school Student Accompanist, Sean Lambert.

"Congratulations to all our students who participated," said Principal Scott Thomason. "These students really shine as artists. They are wonderful ambassadors for their neighborhoods, which are in every corner of our district."
