St. Anthony students perform at band clinic
Two Saint Anthony Catholic School students performed in the two-day South Carolina Band Directors’ Association (SCBDA) Region 5 Junior Honor Band Clinic held at Cane Bay High School Feb. 23-24.
After a rigorous audition in January, sixth graders Carly Tilton (first chair french horn) and Simon Felix (alternate trumpet) earned spots in the clinic comprised mostly of 7th and 8th graders from across the 12 county region.
The audition required many months of hard work and dedication from both students and their band director. Carly and Simon were also among five St. Anthony students who auditioned and were selected to participate in the Junior Eastern District Honor Band Clinic held earlier this month at Hartsville Middle School.
St. Anthony students that earned spots in the Eastern District Junior Honor Band Clinic included Godric Armstrong (5th grade - flute), Andrea Elya (5th grade - clarinet), Carly Tilton (6th grade - french horn), Bea Acaylar (6th grade - french horn), and Simon Felix (6th grade - trumpet).
The Saint Anthony Catholic School Band located at 2536 Hoffmeyer Road in Florence is under the direction of John Cipollina.
