The concert gave the students a chance to rehearse with a new director as well as with students from other schools. Students also get the chance to play more challenging music they normally would. According to the director - it takes hard work to be a part of the group.
"Basically these kids prepare music for a couple months leading up to their audition and they try out and then they make honor band which gives them a day out of school they get to learn new music and then perform," said Erika Zeller.
The honor band gives students a chance to play music they otherwise would not be able to; often more challenging.
The District 2 Honor Band Concert is February 18 at 7 p.m. in the Bolton High School Auditorium.
