Honors band accepts students

After months of preparation, dedicated practice and an audition in September against the best high school musicians in the state, freshman Jason Donnelly, sophomore Chris Projahn, and juniors Logan Reid, Brian Hall, Shelby Krupar, Matt Pieper and Robby Burke were accepted into the 2014 Florida All-State Band.
Selected high school students from all over the state will travel to Tampa in January for three days of rehearsal and a final performance on Saturday, Jan. 11 at the Straz Performing Arts Center.
“They only pick a couple people in the entire state for each section,” Reid said. “I feel privileged.”
