A news release:
Three Dexter High School Students were recently selected for the Michigan All State Band. Bethany Hansen (senior, flute), Travis Millar (junior, alto saxophone), and Sophia Maxton (junior, clarinet) will perform with the band at Devos Hall in Grand Rapids on Jan.18, 2014.
More than 2,500 students auditioned for approximately 90 spots at sites across the state in October.
The audition required performance of a prepared etude, memorized scales and sight reading. According to Dexter High School band director Kenneth Moore, being named to an All State ensemble is “one of the most prestigious honors a student musician in Michigan can receive.”
Included on the Honorable Mention list was Zachary Kaufman (senior, alto saxophone).
