Spence, Reed named to NYS Band Directors Association middle school honor band

Spence Reed

Twin Towers Middle School seventh-graders Savannah Spence and Thomas Reed, both clarinet players, have been named to the New York State Band Directors Association Middle School honor band, which will be a virtual experience this year.

Savannah and Thomas were nominated and accepted to the ensemble based on their previous musical accomplishments. They will both work with a guest conductor and audio engineer to learn their parts and produce a high quality band product. Our students will work with about 150 other middle school musicians from throughout the state. They will rehearse in an online setting, work with guest clinicians and interact with other students.

The honor band experience will culminate with a virtual watch party of the completed ensemble on March 6.

Congratulations, Savannah and Thomas!
