Jacob's State IMTA Audition

On February 2nd Jacob won the IMTA (Iowa Music Teacher's Association) Auditions in Dubuque. This qualified him for the state auditions. On March 16th he, Drew, Mary and Drew's Parents headed to Waverly, Iowa for the state auditions. He auditioned at 11:30, playing in level C. He was hoping to get a 1 ranking and felt good about his performance. After lunch they all headed back here. About 4:00 PM he checked the web site and has been pinching himself ever since he read winner in the final column across the line with his name on it. Congratulations Jacob!!

Wonderful job, Jacob! Lovely! Congrats--sounded like a winning performance to me (Heidi did this contest once, so I listened in on some performances then...giving me a small measure of credibility :-)
