Redcoat Band Members Selected to ATSSB All-Region Band
The Gainesville High School Redcoat Band participated in the ATSSB All-Region Band auditions on Saturday, December 1. Hundreds of students from across the region auditioned for a spot into one of the two bands. Seven GHS band members were selected, and will advance to the Area level of the competition.
Earning a place in the Region 2 Concert Band were Melody Rutherford and Eduardo Huerta, Trombone; Mauricio Millan, Tuba; and Cesar Barrios, Trumpet. Selected to the Symphonic Band were Harmony Rutherford, Horn; Angel Avila, Tenor Saxophone; and Miguel Covarrubias, String Bass.
“We had 14 students that were able to pass the requirements to be allowed to audition, twice as many as last year. We are proud of all of them, and commend the students who were selected,” commented Russ Rutherford, Director of Bands.
The students will attend a two-day Area event in Argyle in January, which will consist of rehearsals with a renowned conductor and a concert on the evening of the second day.
