Congratulations to sophomore Jon Jones and junior Adrienne Fontan! These two Flushing High School students were selected, from over 2,300 musicians across the state, to perform in the MSBOA All-State Honors Band!!! Adrienne earned a place in the oboe section, and Jon will be performing on the baritone saxophone. Both students auditioned for this prestigious ensemble in late October. The audition recordings were sent to the state, reviewed by a committee of judges, and results released on Friday.
In January 2013, Adrienne and Jon will travel to Grand Rapids to perform at DeVos Hall in the Amway Grand Convention Center. They are the first instrumentalists from Flushing to earn a position in the All-State ensembles in several years – a very big accomplishment! Ms. Ketchum, Mr. Fontan, and the entire FHS band community is proud of their stellar musicianship – great job representing Flushing!
