Last week, 21 students from Zemmer, Rolland-Warner, Lapeer East and Lapeer West participated in the annual Michigan School Band and Orchestra Association Honors Band Festival. The students were selected based on recommendations from their teacher, performance at Solo & Ensemble and outstanding musicianship.
The event took place all day at Ortonville-Brandon High School along with musicians from 31 other surrounding school districts. The day culminated in an evening concert in a packed auditorium of over 1,000 parents, family and friends.
These students did an outstanding job representing Lapeer Schools and our instrumental music program: Mariena Jones, Sarah Powers, Stephanie Wilcox, McKenna Muller, Hannah Hastings, Keefer Maresh, Shane Walker, Abby Warner, Renee Russell, Caramia Bertoni, Colin Robertson, Brooklyn Dearing, Tori Roush, Rylei McAllister, Lucas, Bickman, Jordyn Ross, Kellee Byard, Sam Hart, Zildjian VanBrocklin, Marissa Pruitt and Lydia Bontrager.
