Middle school band students from across the county will come together to perform at the All- County Middle School Band event scheduled on March 17 and 18 at Stonewall Middle School. This annual honors event gives young musicians a chance to perform challenging musical selections under the direction of a guest conductor, while allowing them to experience playing with a larger ensemble.
The Directors’ Honor Band will perform first, conducted by Greg Oaks, director of bands at Battlefield High School in Haymarket, Virginia. Sharon Still, music director and conductor of the Rehoboth Concert Band in Delaware will conduct the Middle School Honors Band.
Full-day student rehearsals will culminate with a public performance at 3:30 p.m on Saturday, March 18. This concert is free and open to the public. Guests are encouraged to attend and support arts education in PWCS schools.
