Posted by Community Relations Department on 10/3/2012

Central High sent its clarinet quartet to perform at the Phoenix Environmental Quality Commission 25th Anniversary event, September 20 at Phoenix City Hall. One of the speakers, former Director of the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality Steve Owens was surprised by the talented students.

"Wow, I want to acknowledge the clarinet quartet. I had no idea there were in high school, I thought they were part of the Phoenix symphony," Owens said. 

Members of the quartet are Ryan Fernandez; Rebekah Patterson; Azalea Yuhnke and Yoshio Achutegui.  The quartet is part of Jamie Johnston’s Central band program.
