Congratulations to senior Katarina Hilden (euphonium) and eighth grader Kamryn Scott (euphonium) for their selection to the 2015 MSBOA All-State Honors Band! Katt and Kamryn will spend three days rehearsing in Grand Rapids in January and then put on a concert with the top musician from all over the state!
Also, eighth grader, Eric Urbanski (percussion) was selected for Honoroable Mention! Congratulations to you also!
In order to be selected, students had to participate in a 'blind' audition process in October. Several students from Western Middle School and High School auditioned as well as thousands of students from all over the state.
