Honor Band

Posted Date: 11/03/2022

The band directors in the Gem State Region (Rexburg through Preston) have join forces, giving time, resources, and expertise for the purpose of offering, compiling, and executing our 2nd Annual Gem State Middle School Honor Band for students in Southeast Idaho. (The event will be November 15-16th in Blackfoot, in conjunction with the high school honor band ensembles.)

Modeled after the high school honor band process, middle school students were asked to prepare specific materials which would demonstrate their range, tone quality, rhythmic accuracy, note accuracy, pitch/intonation, ability to play at tempo, musical phrasing, and overall musicianship. Students were then asked to record and upload their audition videos to be adjudicated by a panel of band directors throughout the region who determined an auditionees' score based on pre-decided criterion.

We are pleased to announce the sixteen Sandcreek advanced band students that chose to audition were selected to rehearse/perform in the honor ensemble.

Happy and excited for our students: not only for their overall progression and the chance to experience this opportunity, but for them to represent our school and our district as well.
