Students are selected based off of musical proficiency and academic standing. The students go to that college campus and audition in front of music professors at the University for placement within an ensemble. Once students find out their placement, they then work several days on music and put on a concert. Chilhowie High School had students represented in all honor band ensembles at Virginia Tech and ETSU. The students performed outstanding concerts in both honor band events.
The students that participated in Virginia Tech Honor Bands were Kelly Hutton, Amber Blevins, Emily Blevins, Rainni Crutchfield, Tim Hall, and Alec Roberts. The students that participated in ETSU Honor Bands were Amber Blevins, Emily Blevins, Kelly Hutton, and Tim Hall! Congratulations and outstanding job!
