Outstanding Jackson County Middle School Band Students Selected for the 2014 Georgia All-State Band
Each year the thirteen districts of the Georgia Music Educator's Association host district honor band auditions across the state. Students who score high enough are given the opportunity to audition for the All-State Band. This year, West Jackson Middle School Band is fortunate to have six students secure a spot in the All-State Band.
These very talented musicians are: Heather Howell (euphonium), Christian Kilgore (percussion), Cole Nelson (alto saxophone), Skylar Prince (trumpet), Karrin Swenson (clarinet), and, Isiah Thao (tuba).
Mr. William Kilgore, director of bands at WJMS, would like to congratulate these students. It is an honor for these students to be chosen to take part in the All-state band. The All-State Band is the highest honor a band student can receive in middle school. "For Jackson County to have 6 students to make the band, this is quite a feat", says Mr. Kilgore.
The GMEA Middle School All-state Band will convene at the Classic Center in Athens, GA on Feburary 27th and will perform a spectacular concert on March 1st.
