The Catawba River Winds is hosting an honor band clinic for middle school students on Friday, December 15th, in conjunction with our December Concert at Nation Ford High School. This is an exciting opportunity for middle school students in Mecklenburg, York, and Lancaster counties. The selection of students will be based on director nominations. After selection, participating students will submit a short video to help determine the part assignments. We want this to be user-friendly for both you and your students.
We look forward to a GREAT Clinic for you and your students!
For more information or questions regarding this event, please get in touch with our honor band coordinator, Martin Dickey.
