Six SC Band Students Participate in District Honor Bands at UCM
On Saturday, six Smith-Cotton High School Band students traveled to the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg to participate in the West Central Missouri Music Educators Association district honor bands.
Brandon Biggs, Josue Carlos, and Jerry Mullins were selected to the Honorable Mention Band under the direction of Mrs. Lori Hutton of Drury University. Holden Fox, Gabriel Toderescu-Stavila, and Grayson Young were selected to the Honor Band under the direction of Dr. Chris Knighten, Director of Bands at the University of Arkansas.
These students spent Friday night and all day Saturday rehearsing with their ensembles to perform the evening's final concert.
Band director Max Meigel: "We are very proud of the work these young men put in to earn their spots and to prepare for this event. Working with these clinicians and meeting so many other wonderful musicians was a great experience for our students."
