This past Saturday the Pensacola Music Teachers Association hosted the annual Sonata Contest at UWF. Over 506 students and 58 teachers participated. Our Trinitas music students performed quite well, with many of them placing in the top 3 of their division.  Overall, we had 14 students participate with eight in piano, four in voice, and two in strings.

Laura Looper (a student of Sewell Griffith) placed first in voice, singing a medley of hymns and a 17th century song by Scarlatti.  Chris Dunham (a student of Ed Varela)  placed first in piano playing Sonatina in C major.  Congratulations to both!  The other winners and participants are listed below:
