Five middle school students representing South Hamilton School performed with the 1998 NCIBA Middle School Honor Band on November 14 in Hampton. Fifty-five schools were represented in the ensembles which prepared their concert in one day. Participating students from our school were, from left to right: Kirk Williams on percussion, Jamie Olson on trumpet, Erin Larson on alto clarinet, Valerie Krumm on trombone, and Lynsey Carlson on Euphonium. Conducting the ensembles were Gary Flanigan of Ottumwa and Bard Mackey from Cedar Falls.
From her successful morning audition, Lynsey was selected as an alternate to the Iowa Middle School Honor Band which will premiere a piece at the IBA State Convention in Des Moines in May.
