The Iowa All-State Band is a select high school band made up of 284 students from grades 9-12. Sheldon High School Band Instructor Cliff St. Clair tells us about it.
He says students volunteer to prepare for All-State auditions.
He says Sheldon took five students to auditions. St. Clair says it’s pretty common not to make it in the first year you audition. He says the Sheldon students did a great job.
Mr. St. Clair tells us what happens when they get together for the All-State Music Festival.
Not only is the Iowa All-State Music Festival concert open to the public, but Iowa Public Television has been recording the concert and has been playing it back at a later date. According to the IPTV online schedule, it is to air this year at 7 PM on Thanksgiving. St. Clair says it will also be replayed on the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
