The Sioux City Community School District is proud to announce that West High School junior, Antonio Ferraro, has earned third prize in the prestigious “Città di Massa” International Competition.

Internationally, dozens of students submit online recordings for consideration and a jury made up of music educators and internationally renowned musicians review these submissions. This is the 10th year the Diapason Musical Association is presenting the “Città di Massa” International Competition. The competition encourages young musicians to perform and grow in their art.

Ferraro is a violin student at West High and a member of the USD Chamber Orchestra. In preparation for the competition, Ferraro practiced the competition musical piece at length to gain increased knowledge and proficiency.
