NHS Band Students attend Honor & Invitational Events
On Thursday, April 5th - four students attended the Kaskaskia College Honor Band in Centralia Illinois. Students volunteered for the event and had to be nominated by Mr. Roush in order to be accepted. At the festival, they joined students from all across southern Illinois to form a concert band, rehearsed all day, and then performed a concert in the evening. It was a great opportunity for our students and great day!
On Saturday, April 7th - the Neoga High School Band attended the Eastern Illinois University Concert Band Invitational. At this festival, the band performed for a panel of three collegiate band directors as well as other schools in order to receive constructive feedback and comments. After their performance, the band was privileged to receive a one on one clinic with one of the judges, Dr. Nikk Pilato of Indiana State University. It was a great day of music and learning for our students.
