Students auditioned to be selected for the District 6 Regional All-District Honor Band on Saturday. Students had to record themselves at home and submit their auditions online.
James Li, 7th Chair Concert Band Percussion, Katie Rorrer, 4th Chair Concert Band Trombone, and
Eduardo Betanzo, 5th Chair Concert Band Tenor Saxophone were all selected for the honor band.
“I am so proud of these students,” said Martinsville High School Band Director Brian Joyce. “Being selected to the VBODA District 6 Regional All-District Band is quite an honor in a regular year. Earning this honor while learning virtually shows the depth of their dedication. We have the best students here at Martinsville High School and I’m so blessed to work with them on a daily basis.”
“I congratulate our band program and our students who participate and practice in such a dedicated manner,” said Martinsville City Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Zeb Talley. “We especially thank our parents and staff for their great support. MCPS values and supports the Arts.”
