Nine Zeeland band students earn state honors
Francis Laporte earned an Invitation to be a member of the MSBOA/MYAF Honors Band by earning a top score in the proficiency exam portion of the festival competition. Zeeland's eight small ensemble musicians won nominations from individual adjudicators and must now submit an audition recording by April 16 to be considered for the Michigan Youth Arts Festival.
A panel of adjudicators will select the top ensembles in specified categories to perform during the Michigan Youth Arts Festival. A collage concert featuring all of the selected ensembles will happen Saturday May 12.
Congratulations and best of luck to these fine musicians and to their instructor, Keith Walker.
