Fillmore Central Band members participate in All State Concert and Symphonic bands

This past week, August 6-11, 2012, two hundred of the finest high school band musicians met at the annual Minnesota Music Educators Association All-State Band Camp on the campus of the University of Minnesota Duluth. Among these elite performers were Fillmore Central flutist, Gwen Petrillo (daughter of Gerri Black) and percussionist, Nicholas Powell (son of Lane and Jessie Powell).

These two students 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. The All-State Jazz band, Concert Band, and Symphonic Band rehearsed as full ensembles and in sectionals for approximately eight hours per day during their week-long camp. The week culminated with a concert at Duluth East High School this past Saturday. The All-State bands will reconvene this coming February for a special performance at the MMEA Mid-Winter Clinic in downtown Minneapolis.

Special thanks to the Fillmore Central Fine Arts Trust Fund, the Harmony Fire Department, and the Preston Fire Department for their financial assistance in helping to provide this wonderful opportunity for these talented young people!
