On the weekend of March 8 to March 10, musicians from across the state who tried out and made All State Band met at Purdue University’s Elliott Hall of Music. The students were assigned to two bands, All State Band and All State Honor Band. Each band began practicing Friday night and continued until Sunday morning, preparing for Sunday afternoon’s concert. Each band had a great time at practices and on their free time. It was a great time to meet new friends that share the same interests as you, even if it’s not in music. Any band members interested in trying out, don’t be afraid. It’s a great time!
