The Ames High School Music program had a great weekend Nov. 20­22 at the
Iowa High School All­State Festival with 37 students representing Ames High
involved. The concert will be shown on Iowa Public Television on Thursday
November 26 at 7:00 PM and again on Sunday November 29 at 12:30 PM. Some
of our students earned solo spots within their ensemble so I’m sure they will get
their share of air play.
