SJS 8th Grade Student accepted to Southcentral Regional Honors Band

Oct 22 2018

Congratulations to Jack F. in 8th Grade who was accepted into the Connecticut Future Musicians Southcentral Regional Honors Band. After passing the audition where he had the challenge of learning two new pieces of music, he then participated in an intense period of six rehearsals in three weeks leading up to the concert. The concert was held at Corpus Christi School, Wethersfield on Saturday October 20th and was very well attended with standing room only for proud families and friends.

Southcentral Regional Honors Band

Jack enjoyed playing his alto saxophone as part of a big band comprising 78 students from 22 different Catholic schools from three archdioceses. The ten new pieces of music were performed under instruction from seven different conductors. It was a wonderful concert and was enjoyed by all. This was a very enriching experience that Jack will always remember. He was pleased for the support and encouragement from our music teacher Mrs. Hurlburt. We are proud of him for representing St. John School so well.

Congratulations Jack!
