Six 8th grade students from the Discovery Middle School Band program were selected to perform in the DSO Middle School Honor Band for 2016. These students are Loren Campbell (flute), Jordan Cleveland (baritone saxophone), Nathan Draper (bass clarinet), Bobby Milleville (euphonium), Stephen Nagy (bass clarinet), and Bethany Sandburg (french horn). These achievement-oriented students were excited to perform in this prestigious group and took to the Orchestra Hall stage in Detroit on Monday evening March 21st, and performed a wonderful concert!
The students received the music that day, rehearsed for six hours, and performed the concert that night. A true Herculean effort to say the least, and the students are very proud to have represented the Plymouth-Canton Community Schools, Discovery Middle School, and the Canton community at this esteemed musical event.
Congratulations to these wonderful student musicians and to their proud families!
Note: The DSO’s Middle School Honor Band is an opportunity for middle school-aged musicians to rehearse and perform with renowned directors in historic Orchestra Hall. In the course of one day, students work together to learn challenging Wind Ensemble repertoire alongside Detroit Symphony Orchestra musicians, before performing the same evening for family, friends, Michigan music educators, and the public.
