The audition results from the Honor Band for the Aurora Music Festival were announced last Friday. Seven students from the Steller band program have been accepted. The students are Jessie Hardison on flute; Julia Johnson on flute, Liam Lauderdale on clarinet; Sebastien Libbrecht, trumpet; Tatiana Rogers on flute; Erica Stryker on trumpet; and Kohlby Vierthaler on trombone. “I am very proud of these students who took extra time preparing for the auditions,” said Mr. Toba, the band director. “I am especially thrilled of the fact that Sebastien and Erica are 1st and 2nd chair, respectively. Half of the flute section are Steller students. Jessie even got the 2nd chair. Kohlby earned the 2nd chair, too.” The Aurora Music Festival will be from Thursday, April 12 through Saturday, 14th, at Grace Christian School in Anchorage. The final concert will be Saturday, the 14th. Public is invited.
