2/22/18 - On Friday, February 23, 21 Howell Public Schools middle school band students will perform with the Livingston County Middle School Honor Band. This is a new program created by middle school band directors from around the county. The students will spend the day working in sectionals and as a full band preparing for the inaugural Livingston County Middle School Honor Band Concert which will be held that evening in the Fowlerville Alverson Center for Performing Arts at 7:30 p.m.


Seventh and eighth-grade students from Howell Public Schools, Brighton Area Schools, Fowlerville Community Schools and Hartland Consolidated Schools were all nominated to participate in the band by their band directors. From Highlander Way Middle School Sasha Catlett, Michael Cole, Cooper Crowe, Jadon DeLand, Joseph Janssen, Sarah Konsdorf, Evan Leone, Evelyn Schlacht and Nevan Smith.will perform with the band. From Parker Middle School Alex Austin, Ellie Bonanni, Makenzie Cude Gavyn Forcia, Elijah Flak, Grace Fyke, Anna Hoffman, Ella Koons, Adam Roberts, Brian Roberts, Leah Sleder and Lilly Vincent were selected for the honors band.


“Over the summer several of the middle school band directors from the school districts in the county got together to begin planning the honor band. Collectively, the band directors felt that an honor band would be a wonderful way to honor, reward and recognize our students that go above and beyond the normal call of duty for band class,” said Jeff Stimson, Parker Middle School band director. “We are very excited about the inaugural performance and look forward to growing this idea and experience.”


“This is going to be an amazing opportunity for our students. Through the honor band they will have the experience of working with different band directors and get to work in small groups focused on their instrument,” said Maureen Gray, Highlander Way Middle School band director.


The Livingston County Middle School Honor Band Concert is free and open to the public. The Fowlerville Alverson Center for Performing Arts is located at 700 N. Grand Ave. Fowlerville, MI 48836.
