We are very proud of our band students who worked very hard and auditioned on Saturday in Gardendale and Muscle Shoals for the Alabama All-State Band and the ABA District IV Honor Band.


Emily Warren – 8th grade – Flute was selected as the top flute player in Jefferson and Shelby counties! She will represent HTMS in the Alabama All-State Band in April.


The following students were selected for the District IV Honor Band:

Merrill Bettis – 8th grade – Clarinet (2nd Year Honor Band Member)

Brennan Boeker – 8th grade – Trumpet

Reagan Bonner – 8th grade – Alto Saxophone

Kathleen Caraway – 8th grade – Percussion (2nd Year Honor Band Member)

Maggie Glidewell  - 8th grade – Flute

Abbigail Golding – 8th grade – Trumpet

Becca Hasenbein – 8th grade – Trumpet

Benson Hoggan – 8th grade – Baritone

Jack Self – 7th grade – Percussion

Sydney Stoehr – 8th grade – Clarinet

Grace Ward – 8h grade – Clarinet (2nd Year Honor Band Member)

Emily Warren – 8th grade – Flute (2nd Year Honor Band Member)


The District Honor Band will be held in Homewood in March.


For those of you who aren't familiar with the process, the state is divided into 8 districts which each hold their own honor bands and then send representatives to the All-State Band in April. Each district has a certain quota from each instrument in the band to send. The students will go to Mobile in April to attend and at that time will re-audition for chair placement. The students will study under some of the best conductors in our profession, and perform with peers who have a love of music just like they do!


HTMS had the third highest number of students selected for the District Honor Band from schools in Jefferson and Shelby counties.
