Despite the icy start to the new year, many WMS band students worked diligently at home to prepare for this year’s All District Concert Band and All Region Jazz Band auditions.  Of the students that auditioned, 5 students claimed a spot in the District Honor Band and 2 others claimed their spots in the All Region Jazz Band.
Among these students that were accepted into the band, many of them will have the chance to audition for a spot in the North Carolina All State Honors Band in early March.  Hannah Wells, Jonah Ottie, and Samantha Torres will audition along with students from every corner of North Carolina for a spot in the top middle school band the state has to offer.  Philip Gloster will be auditioning the same day for one of only two tenor saxophone spots in the North Carolina Jazz Honor Band.
Lots of hard work went into preparing these audition pieces and we are very excited for what these students have accomplished!
