Region V Honors Festival Concert Held in Gregory

Jacey Feyereisen

On Monday, December 2, students from fourteen surrounding schools gathered in Gregory for a day full of music.

Dr. Gary Reeves and Dr. David Holdhusen were the guest directors for the day.  They did an excellent job working with the students all day. Starting at 9 a.m. and practicing until 5 p.m. turned into a long day of hard work for the 250+ students that attended. With only a few students from each school chosen for every section, the odds of getting to attend were slim. The students that did, however, put in a lot of their own time to learn the music just a few weeks before.

 At the 6:30 p.m. concert that night, the band performed five songs and the choir six. Perfecting the music for the concert that night was no easy task, but all coming together as one, the students performed a very well prepared concert and sounded great.
