Four PCHS Band students earned membership through auditioning for the 2017 Georgia Music Educators Association's District XI All-Star Honor Band. Hundreds of high school band students from counties in Central Georgia auditioned at Perry High School in December for membership in this prestigious ensemble. (Pictured from left to right) Alexandria Shelly, trumpet; Sarah Choi, clarinet; Kamari Hardee, clarinet; & Ikeia Smith, clarinet.
Students in these bands are recognized as some of the best in Central Georgia. Kamari Hardee earned the state’s cutoff score and was recommended to the second round state audition for the Georgia All-State Band. To qualify for the prestigious ensembles, the students had to play scales, a lyrical solo, and a music sight reading test. These students will receive GMEA State medals and a plaque for their accomplishment.
The District Band performed on Saturday, February 11th at the Baldwin High School Performing Arts Center in Milledgeville, Ga. The PCHS Band is under the direction of Mr. Darren Johnson.
