On Friday, February 23 and Saturday, February 24, Five Mid-Carolina High School students attended the 2018 Region Band Clinic at Nation Ford High School. These students were selected through a rigorous audition process back in January. They spent a majority of Friday and Saturday morning learning 3-4 brand new pieces of music they had never seen before to perform at a superior level at a concert held on Saturday evening. They were directed by prestigious directors from around the United States. The Clinic Band conductor was Ron Payne - retired director of bands of Charlotte Latin Schools and the Senior Band conductor was David Starnes - current director of athletic bands at Western Carolina University and former director of bands of Kennesaw Mountain High School.

Congratulations to the following students on their tremendous accomplishments:

Clinic Band (9th and 10th graders)
Emma West - 9th chair flute
Madison Oviedo - 24th chair clarinet
Mark Wells - 8th chair trumpet
Joe Murray - 10th chair trumpet

Senior Band (11th and 12th graders)
Matthew Shealy - 4th chair alto saxophone
