This past Friday, December 7, 2018 were the MS All-Region Auditions. Stuents from all around the region-including schools like Melissa, Anna, Van Alstyne, Farmersville, Howe, Celina, etc.-prepare audition music for the honor of making the All-Region Symphonic or Concert Bands. This audition is like a giant chair test, and students are ranked based on their scores from top to bottom.
We had 13 students from Edge Middle School respresent our school and audition for the band. Our students competed against 88 Flutes, 89 clarinets, 67 percussion, 64 trumpets, 56 trombones, 53 Saxophones, 61 Euphoniums & Tubas, and 35 French Horns. Fortunately we had 5 of our Edge Braves make the band! Lauren McDaniel, clarinet, and Andrew Carroll, tuba, made the Symphonic Band and Karrington Robinson, clarinet, Lilly Roddy, flute, and Joseph Smith, euphonium, made the Concert Band! This is the second year for Lauren McDaniel and Karrington Robinson to make the All-Region Band!
We are so proud of all our students representing our school so well!
