Students have been busy rehearsing for this 30th annual district event and are looking forward to the opportunity to perform with their classmates as well as with students from across the district.
In addition to recognition as an honor band member, one junior high student and several high school students will be recognized at the concert for outstanding honor band participation over two to six years in the program.
The Robert K. Downs Memorial Scholarship is presented to a senior annually in appreciation for Downs’ contributions to music education in the SCV, as a former band director for Hart High School and College of the Canyons. Several smaller Honor Band scholarships will also be announced.
