Walberg selected for all-state
March 15, 2013
Kai Walberg, a freshman at Mount Vernon High School, was selected as the first tenor saxophone in the Class 1A/2A 2013 Iowa All-State Jazz Band.
In order to be selected for this honor, Kai recorded himself playing two pre-determined etudes. Recordings were evaluated by a group of jazz educators, and then selections were narrowed down to only two players in the state.
Kai and other all-staters will perform in a concert at the Hall of Cities Ballroom at the Downtown Marriott Hotel in Des Moines this spring.
