Damascus Middle School Students Named to All-District Band

Each December, students from throughout our region audition for All-District Band.  This year, 950 students auditioned for just over 400 spots, and eight Damascus Middle School students were selected to participate!  The students were as follows:  Lukas C., Stacy D., Josh H., Audra H., Will F., Cortlyn K., Olivia S., and Jeremy T.  Kaiden F. was named an alternate.  On February 3-4, these students had the wonderful opportunity to prepare music with guest conductors at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center.  After two days of hard work, each of the four bands presented a public concert on Saturday evening.  The All-District Band event is a wonderful opportunity for students to display their talent and effort!  The Damascus Middle School band is directed by Mr. Logan Childress and Mr. Bob Ballengee.
