MOSES LAKE — Seventy Moses Lake students took part Saturday in the seventh annual Moses Lake-Central Basin Chapter of Washington State Music Teachers Association Music Festival, according to a statement from chapter President Marina Munter. The festival was held at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Moses Lake.
This year’s theme was “Celebrate Creativity.” Students performed their own compositions as well as arrangements of their favorite songs and improvisations, Munter wrote. They also displayed visual art projects, wrote stories based on their performance pieces, did theory tests, created craft projects and decorated cookies, she added.
“We, piano teachers, are proud to have so many talented and amazing young performers in Columbia Basin,” Munter wrote in the statement.
