District Honor Band Clinic Highlights

Ten students from the CATA band program attended the 2015 South Central District Honor Band clinic at Lenoir-Rhyne University this past weekend.  They worked under the direction of world renowned composers Brian Balmages and Robert Sheldon to build their musicianship and prepare repertoire for a concert that was performed at the conclusion of the clinic.  Words truly cannot express how much our students enjoyed this year's clinic!
