Ten Ravenscroft Upper School Band students were selected to participate in the UNC-Wilmington Honor Band Clinic, held Nov. 29-Dec.1 at the university. After an on-site audition for ensemble placement and chair position, the students participated in three days of rehearsals and attended clinics and concerts by the UNCW ensembles.
Eight of the nine auditioning students — David Wei '20, Bob Li '20, Xena Gray '19, Zachary Skubic '19, Matt Lang '19, Thomas Hudson '20, Bradley Taber '20 and Adam Seidenfrau '19 — were selected to participate in the Blue Ensemble under the direction of David Robinson, director of bands at Panther Creek High School in Cary. One student, Charlie Winston '19, was selected to perform in the top band, the Teal Ensemble, under the direction of Dominic Talanca, director of bands at UNCW. Both ensembles performed a concert on the last day.
Congratulations to these outstanding musicians!
