Plainview represents in Past and Upcoming Honor Bands

February 01, 2016

    The month of January has been a busy one for many of the band students! On January 23, 10 students performed for the conference honor band that included 16 schools at Wayne State College. There was a 9 and 10th grade band conducted by Wayne's percussion professor, Mr. Brad Weber, and an 11th and 12th grade band conducted by Dr. Michelle Bluford from Elkhorn South High School. The students were busy with chair placements as early as 8:00 that morning. If they got 1st or 2nd chair in their section they recieved a medal from the conference. Many students had to practice for this ahead time. Plainview Band was proud to take home 5 medals! This included Micah Williams, 2nd chair persussion, Kaydi Daudt, 2nd chair tenor saxophone, Brittani Wacker, 1st chair baritone saxophone, Jordyn Anderson, 1st chair baritone, and Karissa Eichberger, 1st chair flute. Overall it was a great day and we can't wait until next year! 

    The following weekend, on January 30th, Wayne State College held their honor band. Klariss Norris was chosen to play flute in the junior high honor band! This was exciting news considering there was 676 auditions! Overall, there was three bands that were represented by 75 schools.

    And to finish with the latest news, we have had 5 students who auditioned for Class C All State Band and were accepted! Out of 444 auditions, 289 students were accepted. Plainvew is lucky to have Brittani Wacker and Austin Choat perform in the Symphonic band, and Klarissa Norris, Becca Kment, and Ashlyn Ickler perform in the Junior High Band on March 19 at Kearny High School. If you see these students around anywhere be sure to acknowledge them on their huge accomplishments!
