SV Students Participate in the Coastal Carolina University Honor Band & Scholarship Festival

L to R: Dennis Patterson, Christian Scott, Zach Whitson, Alex Whitson, Ethan Dilley
Spring Valley High School Band members Ethan Dilley, Dennis Patterson, Christian Scott, Alex Whitson, and Zach Whitson were recently selected to participate in the 8th annual Coastal Carolina University Honor Band & Scholarship Festival. The festival was held on the CCU campus on December 4-6, 2014. These students were among 150 high school students invited to campus for a three day event with guest clinicians and conductors. Students were placed by a competitive audition process into the Festival Wind Ensemble or the Coastal Honor Band.

These students had the opportunity to work with other talented musicians from across the state, and performed a variety of musical selections  with Quincy Hilliard, Composer in Residence and the Heyman Endowed Professor of Music at the University of Louisiana, and Jeff Ball, founder, artistic director, and conductor of the Brooklyn Wind Symphony. 

Congratulations to these young men, they represented Spring Valley very well!
