This past weekend, 28 of our Middle School and High School Band members participated in the District 9 All-Star Band weekend in Alpena. Student musicians from 12 different schools, ranging from Alpena to Clare, auditioned for a spot in either the Junior or Senior All-Star Band. From Tawas, 14 of our student musicians performed in the Junior All-Star Band, and 14 student musicians performed in the Senior All-Star Band. Tawas students made up 25% of each ensemble!!!
The Junior Band was conducted by Mr. Roger Stevens, retired Band Director from Northeast Middle School in Midland. The Senior Band was conducted by Dr. Norm Wiki, Director of Bands at Saginaw Valley State University. The Bands performed a concert on Saturday, after only six hours of rehearsal time! Congratulations on a successful performance!!!
