The brothers and sisters started our Saturday by assisting the band staff with a very successful clinic day! Over 100 high school band members came to EMU, auditioned for an honors band scholarship, and participated in a clinic with their future applied professor. The night finished with an amazing performance by our Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band and Marching Band at our annual Band-O-Rama event. During the show the presidents of KKY and TBS announced the winners of the two awards sponsored by our chapters.
