Bradley May plays in Honor Band
Bradley May, Jr., a sophomore at Buffalo Island Central, recently participated in the 2013 Mid-South Honor Band at Arkansas State University. Area high school band directors were asked to nominate one band member to participate. Dr. Page, band director at BIC, nominated Bradley.
This event differed from other honor bands because it was designed primarily for high school juniors and sophomores. Students from more than 20 different high schools across the Mid-South participated in this event. Students rehearsed during the morning and afternoon, and then presented a concert Saturday night. The ASU Wind Ensemble, conducted by Dr. Timothy Oliver, director of bands and coordinator of wind and percussion studies, lead the musicians of the ASU Wind Ensemble in a short concert presentation following the performance by the Mid-South Honor Band.
By taking part in this event, students were given the opportunity to work with ASU music faculty and students, as well as the guest clinician for the Mid-South Honor Band, Sarah Labovitz.
