On Saturday January 14th, several Sullivan South band students traveled to Knoxville to participate in the ETSBOA All-State East Clinic Auditions. These students along with approx.1500 other band students from the eastern third of the state competed for placement in both the ALL-EAST Clinic as well as the ALL-STATE Clinic. Students who were successful in this audition participated in the All-EAST clinic that was held this last weekend in Gatlinburg, TN. The very top qualifiers were named to participate in the ALL-STATE BAND CLINIC that will be held in April.
Congratulations to the following South students who were selected to participate in the ALL-EAST Clinic: Rebecca Firth (9/10 top band), Sydney Mann (9/10 top band), Aiden Ponder (9/10 second band), Molly Topping (11/12 top band), Abby Luster (11/12 second band), and Katie Wilson (11/12 second band).
