A Dripping Springs High wind ensemble member earned co-outstanding soloist honors at the Sam Houston State University Conservatory Camp last week in Huntsville.
Lettie Thomas Hastings, a Dripping Springs High junior, was named as a co-recipent of the outstanding soloist award, which was also given to cellist Kyle Victor, of Houston. Nine musicians took part in the solo competition at the camp.
Hastings earned the award after playing “Arabeske No. 18” by Robert Shuman on the piano. She then played her solo at the final performance of the camp.
In May, Hastings earned first divisions at the UIL State Solo and Ensemble competition for her solos on both the piano and flute. She is the only student from Dripping Springs to take two solos to state.
Hastings, who studies piano at the Blue Frog School of Music, will perform at the CPC Thursday Noonday Concert Series, which will be held July 20 at Central Presbyterian Church in Austin.
Hastings is a member of the Dripping Springs Tiger marching band and plays synthesizer on the field and flute in the stands. She also plays flute in the Tiger wind ensemble.
