Steller Band Earns 2nd Place

Steller Band participated in the Aurora Music Festival in April at Grace Christian School. During the music festival, the band entered a large group adjudication and won 2nd Place. The selections are “March to Castle Rock” by Steve Hodges, 1st Movement from “Quartet” by J.S. Bach, arranged by Arthur Hull, and “Psalm” by William Himes.

“This is by far the best accomplishment for our band this year”, said Mr. Toba, the band director. “We worked extremely hard, and our effort paid off. While the other bands which entered the adjudication are high school bands, as far as I know of, we are the only band that has not only high school students but also 7th and 8th graders. I am super proud of our band students.” The band students and Mr. Toba would like to thank Reed Whitmore, the Steller principal, the Steller staff members, and the parents, for their wonderful support of the band program. The 2nd Place plaque will be displayed in the Steller office.
