Posted by Community Relations on 1/27/2016

North High had eight band and orchestra students selected for its Region Band or Orchestra.   Thousands of Arizona students performed difficult audition music for judges across the state on January 23 to compete for limited spots, and North had the most musicians of any Phoenix Union school. Jackson Carpenter-clarinet; Elizabeth Garcia, percussion and Jacob Mota-percussion made West Region Band. Isaiah Herrera-bassoon; Jean Munoz-cello and Samuel McTGier-strng bass made West Region Orchestra. Guillermo Contreras- percussion is a Band alternate and Joey Rankin-violin is an Orchestra alternate.  Alternates are next on the list in case a student who was accepted is unable to participate. After spending two days of rehearsals, they will perform a concert at Corona del Sol High School, February 20.  They will then compete one more time for the chance to become members of the Arizona All-State ensembles. Auditions for State take place in March.
