Last Friday and Saturday, band students from Rolland-Warner Middle School traveled to Mackinac Island to participate in the Mackinac Island Music Clinic.  The students performed for Dr. Max Plank, retired director of bands at Eastern Michigan University.

Following the clinic, the band was presented with a plaque in recognition of their participation at the clinic. Ten bands, orchestras and choirs performed. The trip also included a tour of the fort in Mackinaw city, a carriage tour of the island, lunch at the Grand Hotel and a fantastic performance on Friday night by singing group, Three Men and a Tenor. Students also had some time to shop and take in Main Street on the Island and sample plenty of Mackinac Island fudge. For the return trip the band rode the ferry back to St. Ignace and crossed the Mighty Mackinaw bridge.
