Jenny Pappano acted as master of ceremonies as four anxious young men each awaited his turn in front of us, hoping to demonstrate his virtuosity on his chosen instrument in the club level of the Dan Stover Music Competition. The completion, named in honor of the Alhambra Rotarian and dedicated musician, is one of three district wide events, along with the Hensel Essay and Four Way Speech contests, held for high school students throughout District 5300 each year. The contestants were: Joseph Garcia, xylophone; Luis Villa-Lobos, violin; Ian Flores, drums; and Nathaniel Young, saxophone. Each was impressive in his own right, but it was drummer Ian Flores who won the crowd over with his stage presence as well as his playing. He accepted his $150 prize with a big smile. He will move on to compete at the Group level and if successful will compete at the District 5300 Conference, held this year in San Diego.
