THS band doubles honor band participants

The Thomson High School Bulldog Brigade has doubled its number of participants in the District 10 Honor Band in February. Those selected to participate include:

Orion Palmer -- 9th chair clarinet

Luke Kellogg -- 10th chair clarinet

Clara McDaniel -- 11th chair clarinet

Jackson Rabun -- 2nd chair alto saxophone

Carly Ussery -- 6th chair alto saxophone

Amanda Davis -- 3rd chair Horn

Amy Weimar -- 7th chair Horn

Tiffany Timmerman -- 5th chair Horn

Amber Johnson -- 1st alternate bass clarinet

Steven Strouble -- 1st alternate tenor saxophone

Josh Coursey -- 2nd alternate Horn

Jeremy Timmerman -- 1st alternate Baritone

These students have been preparing for the past several months for the District Band and All State auditions.

The District Honor Band consists of many students from the Augusta area. Students must go through an audition process consisting of scales, solos and sight-reading. From the hundreds of students that audition, the most outstanding are chosen to participate in the band. All of students listed above were among the best in the region.

Thomson had two students that qualified for the All State audition this year: Amanda Davis and Tiffany Timmerman. Students who score high enough at the district level have the opportunity to try out for the All State Band. The All State band consists of students from the entire state of Georgia. If the students make the All State band they will be performing with the top band students from the entire state of Georgia.
