All-State Band to Perform Sunday

On Friday, March 8, members of the All-State Band will perform at Purdue University.

The band includes senior Breanna Ward, junior Koby Durbin, junior Aaron Royer, junior Noah McSpadden, junior Rheanna Jones, junior Hunter Roach and freshman Michael Hannon.

They will leave during fifth period. Then, they will check in at the university and practice for several hours. Around 10 p.m., the group will leave the campus and spend the night at Hilton Garden Inn.

Saturday is also dedicated to rehearsal. On Sunday, members will rehearse one more time, take a group photo and perform at 2:30 p.m in the Elliot Hall of Music.

I am confident my students will perform well because they have prepared the music ahead of time, and they are all talented musicians who know how to perform under pressure,” said band director Ben Werne.
