Students have been busy rehearsing for this 31st annual Hart 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.
