UMS Honor Band
This past Saturday several students - Riley Gean, Ivan Alvarez, Eric Blankenmeyer & Connor Fort - from the Urey Middle School 8th grade Concert Band were members of the Indiana Bandmaster Association All Region Honor Band held at La Salle Academy in South Bend. These students rehearsed throughout the day on Saturday ( November 14) and performed the concert on Sunday ( November 15).
There were 103 members that comprised the ensemble. These students were from our entire northern region. They also had the distinct honor of performing the world premier of a commissioned piece especially written for these IBA All Region Honor Band participants.This piece was the world premier for all the Honor Band ensembles throughout the state.
Congratulations again to 8th grade students - Riley Gean, Ivan Alvarez, Eric Blankenmeyer & Connor Fort.
