BHS students take third in music listening competition

The Burnsville High School team of Kristina Butler, Savannah Lim and Chris Neiner took third place at the Minnesota High School Music Listening Contest at Augsburg College in Minneapolis on Feb. 1.

The competition asks students to identify music, including composer, title, style, time period and more, based on samples played for them. Burnsville’s team scored 93 points, just two points shy of first place. The team topped its regional competition last month to quality for state.

All three students are also involved in performing music. Butler is a singer and plays the flute. Lim sings and plays piano and guitar. Neiner plays French horn and composes music.
