Middle and high school students showcased their musical talent during the 2017 Wilson County Schools All-County Honors Band concert held Nov. 18.
Students auditioned to perform in the honors band or were chosen by their band directors. The evening concert followed all-day rehearsals Nov. 17 and 18.
“I would like to congratulate our students on an outstanding performance and also for their hard work and professionalism in preparing for this performance,” said Elm City Middle band and chorus director Adam J. Schultz, the 2017 honors band coordinator. “They each represented our schools well.”
Michael Biasi, band director and fine arts department chair at Holly Springs High School, served as the middle school clinician, while the high school clinician was Hosea Brower, former Rocky Mount High band director.
Schultz thanked Wilson County band directors “for their hard work in making this event possible” and noted that “many hands makes for lighter work.”
He also thanked the school system for organizing the annual honors band showcase.
“We have some very fine musicians in our schools, and it’s amazing to watch them shine,” Schultz said.
