Five Scottsburg High School Band of Warriors students were selected to participate in the 36th Annual Western Kentucky University Honors Band Clinic, which was held this past weekend, January 26th through the 28th, on the college campus in Bowling Green, KY. Congratulations to seniors Megan Thomas and Sarah Petty, juniors Trevor Cox and Isaak Mount, and sophomore Hannah Dickerson! All five participants were placed in four large concert band ensembles where students spent 11 hours of rehearsal time over the 3-day period preparing 3 or 4 pieces of music. Each band gave a concert performance on the afternoon of January 28th for friends, family, and the general public.

Each band was split into one top 11th and 12th grade honor band, two equal 11th and 12th grade bands, and one 9th and 10th grade ensemble. Megan Thomas was placed, by seating audition, in the top 11th and 12th grade band. Sarah Petty and Isaak Mount were awarded 1st chair in the same band, playing flute and percussion, respectively. Trevor Cox was awarded 1st chair bassoon in the third 11th and 12th grade band, and Hannah Dickerson was awarded 5th chair in the 9th and 10th grade band. Each band was led by a prestigious guest band director: Dr. Patrick Dunnigan, Director of Bands at Florida State University; Mr. Joe Hermann, Director of Bands at Tennessee Tech University; Dr. Christopher Hughes, Director of Bands at Ithaca College in New York; and Dr. Audrey Peterson-Torres, Associate Director of Bands at Hamilton Southeastern High School, Fishers, IN.

About 400 students were selected from over 850 nominations made by band directors throughout the state of Kentucky, Northern Tennessee, and Southern Indiana. To be selected for this event is a huge accomplishment. Congratulations, once again, to our students for their musical excellence!
