This weekend we had 8 students attend the second round for the GMEA All-State auditions. There were roughly 2400 students competing for about 200 spots. The students performed a technical etude and two sight-reading examples – due to the weather, their auditions were adjusted to save time. Making the cut to attend the audition is an honor in and of itself and our students continue to rise to the occasion! I am so proud of the students who served as wonderful ambassadors of our community, school, and band this weekend!
Joshua Hansen, trumpet, successfully earned a spot in the All-State Band and will participate in Athens, GA this March 5-7! Congratulations!!!!
