Instrumental Music students place in Rotary Competition

CHS Band student Kris Leslie won the first-ever Coronado Rotary Music Scholarship competition in January and received a check for $200.  Kris advances to regional competition which will take place on February 27 in Chula Vista. CoSA Instrumental Music senior Evan Agarwal was Runner-Up and received a check for $125. CoSA students Grace Weisbrod, Ally Elicone and Ruby Marrujo won Finalist certificates and checks for $75 each. 

The Rotary District 5340 Music Scholarship Competition aims to recognize the high school senior who best demonstrates musical talent and love for instrumental music.  Four musicians will advance from Regionals to the District Finals to be held in March.  First prize at District Finals will be worth $2500, with the other Finalists receiving $500.

"Coronado Rotary's response to Wednesday's competition was so enthusiastic, the club will schedule this as an annual event," says Robert Taylor, Rotarian and organizer of the event.
