On March 6th and 7th, Brandon Blackketter participated in the Shortgrass Honor Band in Elk City. To be chosen for this honor, you must audition for the band back in December. Brandon joined about 300 other band students from Western Oklahoma that made up three different bands. There was the 7th Grade Band, Jr. High Band (which Brandon was part of), and a HS Band. Students rehearsed for three hours on Monday night and all day on Tuesday to prepare for a concert Tuesday night. Brandon’s favorite piece to perform was “Trumpet Shout-Out”, and he loved getting to perform all of the new and different kinds of music that his band did. Congratulations Brandon!
