Orchestra, band and choir are three classes traveling to Colby on Thursday, April 13 to participate in the KSHSAA State Large Group Music Festival.

“We will depart at 8:30 a.m., Thursday morning,” band instructor Matt Rome said. “We should return from Colby at approximately 6:30 p.m.”

The event happens every year and brings in students from all over Kansas. Last year, all three of the classes received ones, which is the highest score, from all three judges.

This year, Rome expects the band class to do just as well. Orchestra director Joan Crull expects the same.

“If everybody focuses we should do very well,” Crull says. “I feel like we’re prepared if we focus.”

Instructor Johnny Matlock will lead the choir students at the event also.

During all performances, students are expected to support their fellow classmates. Even those at the school can encourage musicians.

“Wish them well if you see a musician between now and Thursday,” Rome said.
