The ECHS band has been selected to compete at the Kentucky Music Educator Association Semi Finals in Lexington on Saturday October 27, 2018 after being one of the top eight competitors at Regionals last weekend.
At the Semi Finals on Saturday morning there will be eight bands from the eastern region and eight bands from the western region competing. The top four bands will compete in the State Finals Saturday evening.
Color Guard instructor Autumn Berry said “The kids have worked really hard and this is a big accomplishment that the program hasn't had since 2010.”
Thursday evening, the ECHS band had a community performance to showcase their talent and celebrate their successes so far in the competition.
“This is the most hardworking group I've had and I'm very proud of all their efforts. Our boosters have worked very hard fundraising for this competition and we are ready to go to Lexington” said Band Director John Woods. “The community has really stepped up, business have been very supportive and we are very thankful.”
