Alec - 3rd chair baritone
*Jahmai - 1st chair bassoon

Students with * by their name also earned the right to audition for the 2015 North Carolina All State Honor Band later this school year.

All of the students listed above will travel to Hickory later this month and participate in the SCDBA Honor Band Clinic where they will have the opportunity to work with world renowned composers and conductors Brian Balmages and Robert Sheldon.

We are so very proud of all of our musicians who accepted the challenge of preparing for and auditioning for the honor band this year.  Congratulations to all who auditioned!
