Congratulations to Wiley Band Members Sarah Simpkins and Sadie Mecham for representing Wiley in the 30th Annual Northwest North Carolina All-District Honors Symphonic Band!

On Jan. 11, 655 band students, representing 48 middle schools from 19 counties in Northwest N. C., auditioned for placement in the District Honors Band.

97 WSFCS students were selected to perform with this prestigious ensemble. Our own Sarah Simpkins placed 9th out of 100 clarinet players and Sadie Mecham placed 10th out of 62 flutes players.

The clinic was held Feb. 14 and 15, on the campus of Appalachian State University. The Honors Symphonic Band was led by Debra Haburay from Forestwood Middle School in Flower Mound, Texas.
