Dear Band Family, Congratulations to the following students for being selected to move onto the final round of All-State Auditions on Saturday, December 12that John Hardin High School! These students successfully made it through 1st cut last night at Tates Creek HS!
Katie Demos- flute, Vivi Ortiz- oboe, Luke Cave- clarinet, Allison Pin- clarinet, Jacob Ferguson- bassoon, Andrew Collins- alto sax, Jacob O’Donnell- alto sax, Noah Beckett- alto sax & bari sax
Tyler Rosenkrantz- trumpet, Jade Curless- trumpet, Darrien Smithpeter- bass trombone
We are very proud of every student who went through the process and attempted the audition last night whether or not they were selected!
As an observation, the turnout for our school was relatively low this year and I want to encourage more of our band students to attempt the preparation/practice process in the future as it makes individual musicians much stronger and provides tremendous opportunity to improve human character. The experience of “performance under pressure” in the audition setting is a life skill that has to be developed and can be used by students throughout the rest of life. I believe strongly in the fact that preparing for and performing in auditions is one of the most valuable skills we can teach students to prepare them for the future in job interviews, public speaking, communications, business, teaching, etc. Please consider taking advantage of these opportunities as they become available for All-District Band and in the future.
Thanks to all for your support and good luck to all students on their future auditions! Sincerely,
BILL KITE DIRECTOR OF BANDS HENRY CLAY HIGH SCHOOL (859) 381-3441
