Fillmore Central student participates in 2015-16 All State Concert Band

On Friday and Saturday, February 12 and 13, 2016, three hundred of the finest high school band and orchestra musicians met at the annual Minnesota Music Educators Association All-State Mid-Winter Clinic at the Hilton Hotel in Downtown Minneapolis. Among these elite performers were Fillmore Central trumpet player Alex Lange. Alex is the son of Scott and Julie Lange of Harmony.

Mr. Lange earned the right to participate in the All-State Concert Band as a result of a stringent audition process held throughout the state this past March. This was Alex’s first appearance in the All-State groups. Minnesota high school musicians are only offered two opportunities to audition for these groups at the end of their sophomore and junior years. It is the highest honor that a high school musician can receive in the state of Minnesota.

The All-State Jazz band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, and Orchestra rehearsed as full ensembles and in sectionals for approximately six hours per day during their two day experience. There was a week-long camp held this past August for all of the All-State ensembles. The February All-State experience culminated with a special performance at prestigious Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis. Each group received standing ovations and rave revues for their outstanding achievements!

Special thanks to the Fillmore Central School District #2198 for their financial assistance in helping to provide this wonderful opportunity for our talented young people!
