On Saturday Nov. 4, several Wellington students auditioned for the Kansas Music Educators South Central District Honor Band.
WHS Senior Marisa Black was selected to be a member of this group. Of the approximately 50 flute students who auditioned, she placed third chair out of 12 that were eventually selected. This is her second year to be chosen for this honor, and she is now eligible to audition for the State Honor Band. Last year Marisa was also selected for this group.
Of note also: Freshman Julia Starnes was named first alternate for the flute section. If one of the 12 selected students cannot attend the District Honor Band, she will have a position in the band. As a freshman this is a tremendous accomplishment in a highly competitive district.
Congratulations to both Marisa and Julia!
