On Wednesday, Jan. 16, 2019, winners of the Altamont solo competition performed during a school-wide assembly in the Cabaniss-Kaul Center for the Arts. During open auditions last fall, winners of the competition were selected by guest judge Jay Tumminello, a professional musician and sound designer, arranger, and composer for Red Mountain Theatre Company. The solo competition is sponsored by the Altamont Parents Association (APA) and directed by Mr. Michael King.
