AHA Guitar Student Makes All-State
Posted 10/23/18

First Time in School History.


Congratulations to Alfonso Lerma, a senior at AHA, for making school history.  Alfonso becomes the first Jaguar to make All-State Guitar.


"Alfonso now has the honor of being the first AHA guitar student to ever make All State," said his teacher, Mark Opperman.  "He did so by achieving some of the highest scores in the state during his audition. He will be sitting Guitar 1 in the New Mexico All State Guitar Ensemble."


Alfonso's audition included scales, sight reading and a prepared piece (Lagrima by Francisco Tarrega).


Alfonso is also a member of the AHA Student Council.  "He's an outstanding young man!  What a great accomplishment!, said activities director, Jessica Martinez.


The annual All-State Music Festival and In-Service Conference will take place in early January at the University of New Mexico.
