RCHS Band Members Selected for the 2013 WKU Honor Band Program

Recently students from the RCHS Band were selected as members of the 2013 Western Kentucky University Honors Band Program held on campus January 24th-26th.  Students spend two days in rehearsals along with other top players from schools in Kentucky, Indiana and Tennesee.  The band members were afforded the opportunity to work with some of the nation’s leading conductors including Mr. Jack Yonce, Director of Bands, Cheyenne Mountain High School in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Dr. Andrea Strauss Director of Bands at Cobb County High School in Rome, Georgia, and Colonel Larry H. Lang, Commander of the United States Air Force Band in Washington D.C.  The concert on Saturday featured great works of band literature by composers such as Philip Sparke, Frank Erickson, and Samuel Hazo.  Pictured are students Jamie Kirby, Hannah Tyler, Dylan Hillard, Rylan Cromer, along with RCHS Director Greg Daugherty.
