Solo & Ensemble

On February 4, 2017, several members from the Santa Anna Mountaineer Band attended the District Solo & Ensemble contest at Stephenville High School. The group has been preparing for this competition since returning to school from Christmas break.

Angie Calfa and Marin Guthrie both performed a Grade 1 solo (most difficult) on the xylophone titled Hora Staccato by Jascha Heifetz. The girls were required to memorize the piece in order to perform it for the judge. They both did an amazing job and this was their first attempt at UIL Solo & Ensemble.

The others who performed on Saturday included (Trace Garrett, Tony Calfa, Chase Mc Iver, DJ Mattes, Ivan Olguin), (Advancing to State: Kloey Guerrero, Cody Robertson, Maribel Padilla, Madison Diaz, Mateo Lara), and (Advancing to State: Kaleb Peeples, Domanic Enriquez, Ashley Beauchamp, Jake Smiley, Noah Garza). Daniel Garza also attended the competition as an alternate for the competition.

These student groups all performed a Grade 1 brass quintet (most difficult) called Largo and Finale from New World Symphony by Antonín Dvorák, and did an amazing job. The advancing groups will participate in the State Solo & Ensemble Contest in May.

What happened to the weather? Did it get Trumped?

I have worked on this for a couple of days now since the weather station went offline.

I checked EVERYTHING! NTF! NO trouble found! ... other than it wasn't reporting online. On my home network I could see all the weather information when looking at it from here.

Come to find out...

On January 31, 2017, Weather migrated their data center from their offices in San Francisco to Amazon Web Services, so the domain may take some time to redirect.

Or maybe not work at all until I fixed it :)

So now the temperature and weather stats are working again.
