Alex Ludeking competed in several talent shows this summer playing the marimba. Special thanks to Mrs. Lampkin for being a great instructor and teaching Alex his marimba solo.
Alex had a great experience this summer which culminated in his being named a semi-finalist at the Bill Riley Talent Show at the Iowa State Fair. He played the marimba at three county fair talent shows where he earned the right to participate in the Bill Riley Talent Show at the State Fair. He advanced from the preliminary round to the semi-final round in Des Moines which was a real thrill. Mr. Riley invited Alex to return to the State Fair Talent show next summer.
He was also able to play the marimba at his grandmother's nursing home in Decorah and entertain the residents.
Congratulations Alex on your accomplishments!
