Record 25 Owls in All-West Ensembles

The West Tennessee School Band and Orchestra Association selected a record 25 Owls and three alternates for its 2021 All-West Tennessee ensembles. Auditions were virtual because of COVID restrictions, and students had to prepare two videos to submit for judging – one for an excerpt or etude and one for scales.
Fifteen out of those 25 boys made it into the Blue Band, the top band for their ensembles, and two earned 1st Chair, the highest rank in their ensembles. Twelve others earned spots in the 5th Chair or higher.
