Congratulations to the following students who were selected for the Ventura County Middle School Honor Band:
From Las Colinas Middle School: Rachel Wang – flute; Derek Chun, Christopher Cha – clarinet; Colby Adams – trumpet; Dustin Reese – trombone. From Monte Vista Middle School: Emily Rutherford – clarinet. The six students auditioned on January 16 at Redwood Middle School.
The Middle School Honor Band concert will be held on Sunday, March 2, 2014, 5 pm in the auditorium at Ventura High School.
SOKM encourages all advanced young musicians to audition for the Ventura County Honor Bands, whether the High School Honor Band or the Middle School Honor Band. “It’s a great opportunity to further your musical experience and to associate with other talented musicians in Ventura County,” says SOKM President Karen Gatchel. SOKM annually budgets money for coaching for Honor Band, so that is also a resource for interested students.
