Northeast Band Students Participate in Eastern All-District Clinic
On February 5 and 6, three Northeast students participated on the Eastern All-District Band Clinic held on the campus of East Carolina University. Hundreds of students across the East auditioned for a spot in these prestigious bands and were given several pieces of music to learn on their own. On Friday, all of the students met for the first time and began rehearsing the music under the direction of guest conductors. On Saturday afternoon they presented five compositions in a concert at Wright Auditorium. Gracie Morris (clarinet), Ronnie Winfield (flute), and Rachael Daleo (flute) all described the experience as ‘amazing’ and ‘so much fun’. These students, as well as others from Northeast and Bath Elementary, are preparing for competition in Jacksonville, NC in March and Yorktown, VA in May. If you would like to support the bands and meet some of the students and their director, Jenifer Hutson, please consider having dinner at Zaxby’s on Tuesday, March 1 between 5pm and 8pm.
