October Students of the Month

October Band Students of the Month

This month we highlight the undergrad award winners from last year.  Blake, Drew, Gracie and Soren exemplify the awesome band students we have in our program.  Whether is it taking private lessons on two instruments outside of class time or volunteering to give up spares to come in and work with other bands these four did it all.  In addition they made time to be at extra rehearsals and performances…. what dedication!  We are super proud of them and congratulate each one of them for their obvious love and dedication to the band program.
