Headshot of students

On Saturday, January 8th, seven of our Gunter Tiger Band members

auditioned at their Area contest. If ranked high enough, they earn
themselves a spot in the All-State Band. For a school to have one
student make All-State is a huge accomplishment, and Gunter was able to
have 3! Approximately 10,000 students auditioned in the 22 ATSSB
regions for a place in the All-Region Band. The top chairs of each
region qualified for Area auditions. There, more than 2,100 students
compete across the state for a place among 280 students selected for the
All-State Band. That means the percentage of making all-state is 2.8%!
Congratulations to Samantha Neufeld (clarinet), Dylan Marsh (trombone),
and Hayden Rizzo (euphonium) on such a high honor!
