Ambassadors of Music
Local former student, Daniel Johnson, will join the Minnesota Ambassadors of Music on a sixteen day European music performance from July 6 to 21, 2016. He will be playing the baritone with the band and singing bass with the choir. Daniel was nominated before graduating high school in 2015 by North lakes Academy school music director, Nicole Ottjes. High school directors statewide were asked to nominate students based on musicianship and character.
The Minnesota Ambassadors Band and Choir, consisting of students from over 90 Minnesota communities, will spend four days rehearsing together prior to departure and will present a farewell concert. They will then fly to Europe to travel in seven European countries. The tour itinerary, among other destinations, will include concerts and sightseeing in London, Paris, Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Italy. Daniel said, “I am super stoked about this trip. Never did I think I would get to travel to these places.”
