Indiana All-Region Jr. High Band
Five Avon Middle School North students earned the honor of participating in the 42nd annual Indiana All-Region Junior High Band, sponsored by the Indiana Bandmaster's Association.
On a Saturday in November, these musicians gathered with 95 students from 12 Indianapolis-area schools at Southmount High School for a 9:00 am to 4:00 pm practice. The following day, guest conductor Professor Craig Pare, Director of Bands at DePauw University, led the students through the rehearsals and performance. One of these compositions was a world premiere of "Los Cuatro Vientos" by Johan de Meij.
Congratulations to Gavin (percussionist), Kaitlyn (flute), Stella (flute), Henry (tuba), and Rithek (alto saxophone) for their hard work and selection to this prestigious group!
