Thirty-eight seventh grade band students auditioned on November 6 and 7 for solos in the upcoming band concert on December 12. Students have been working on a piece called Whirlwind, which calls for three soloists. They had the chance to practice the solo outside of class and then audition in front of their peers and Ms. Planer during band rehearsal. There were also two opportunities for trumpet players to audition for solos in a jazzy, swing tune called Bluesville and in an Old West sounding piece, Rattlesnake! To hear Erika Henke, Jayden Gill and Kolby Wagner on Whirlwind, Elliot Miller on Bluesville and Hayden Bauer on Rattlesnake!, come check out the seventh grade band concert on Tuesday, December 12 at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Arts Center (CAC) at Sauk Rapids-Rice Middle School.
