2 Kingston Students In Clinic Band

Two students from the KHS Concert Band were chosen to participate in the MSBOA District 3 Clinic Band held December 12 at the Elkton-Pigeon Bayport High School. Those students were Christina Schwaderer, on the clarinet, and Robert Fox, on the Sousaphone. They attended the all-day clinic with their director, Mr. William Rupprecht.

The students are selected by their directors, and then chosen by the clinic chairman on the basis of ability. They are divided into two groups, a B C D band and an AA A group depending on their school’s classification.

The purpose of the clinic bands is to take a group of students who have practiced the music before hand and mold them into a performing group after a series of sectionals and full rehearsals. Guest conductors are in charge of the groups during the whole day which is climaxed by a banquet and concert in the evening.

The KHS band members are now busy preparing for a winter concert to be held in Feb., the District Festival in March, and the Senior High Solo and Ensemble Festival in Feb.

Also on the calendar is a Pancake Supper, January 15, sponsored by the Band Boosters organization. Plans are being made to make it a successful fund-raising event.
