Rishi Goswami ('20), clarinet, and Jay Sagrolikar ('21), alto sax, have been selected to the 2017 All-District Band.
The auditions were held Jan. 14 at Cary High School. Public, private or home-schooled students from central NC were eligible to audition for All-District Band. The audition consisted of learning a challenging solo piece, memorizing and playing seven or eight major scales with arpeggios, and also sight-reading a piece of music students had never seen.
The Central District (one of six NC districts) spans 14 counties from Wake County to Guilford County. Simply by preparing for and performing the audition, students have set themselves in the top 5% of students in the district who play the same instrument, regardless of whether or not they are selected to be in a band.
