KMEA District 7 Honor Bands


We are very excited to have had many students try out for KMEA District 7 Honor Bands this week! Please congratulate the students listed below for making one of the honor bands. We had 25 students make it in, the 3rd largest number of students from any school (behind Lafayette and Henry Clay)! Behind their names, you'll see instrument and which chair they earned in the ensemble - lots of first chairs in there. We also had 4 students make the Jazz Honor bands. Students will rehearse and perform in these ensembles in late Feb. and March.
