Home / School News / WMS Band Well Represented in District Honors Band

 

On January 21, band students from all over Western North Carolina came together

to audition for a spot in the annual District Honors Band. The band is comprised of

the top musicians from each school from as far East as McDowell County to as far

West as the North Carolina and Tennessee state line.

Among those auditioning were students from Waynesville Middle School who had

spent countless hours in the band room during and after school as well as time at

home learning solos, perfecting their scales, and preparing for their auditions.

When all was said and done WMS band students were well represented with 18

students securing a seat in the band. Two or these students, Kacy Vandenbergh (8 th

grade) and Elira Bego-Cardoso (8 th grade), qualify to audition for the All State

Honors Band in early March.

The weekend prior to the all district auditions WMS students also participated in

auditions for the Western Region Jazz Band. Josh Deane (8 th grade) earned a spot

with one of the bands and will be playing trombone with the band the weekend of

February 3-4 at Asheville High School.

Directors Adam Stewart and Jaime Graeber are extremely proud of the work these

students have put forth to prepare for the auditions and for the way they

represented the band program and Waynesville Middle School. Students will

participate in the All District Band clinic held at Western Carolina University on

February 10-11.
