District Band

District Band

By Makayla Schell

Two of Lakeview High School band students, Carter Williams and Braden Sample, recently attended District Band. It was held at Butler High School on Feb. 13 through Feb. 15. The students rehearse their songs the first two days at Districts. On the first day, all of the musicians united as one and auditioned. The musicians rehearse their songs, then the judges will pick who moves onto regionals once the audition is over. The second day will consist of more rehearsing morning to night. The last day, Feb. 15, the students will rehearse for the last time in the morning and they perform the songs later that day. 

Districts consist of student bands from the south east corner of Pennsylvania. This would include counties such as: Butler, Lawrence, and Mercer County. While Carter and Braden did not move to Regionals, Lakeview’s student body and staff could not be more proud.

With the Lakeview High School was a guest conductor Dr. Townesend from Pitt. A comment from Mr. May, the band director, “Our two fantastic students did a phenomenal job and represented Lakeview High School very well. I could not be more proud of them.”
