St. Croix Valley Music Educators Association Honors Band
Each year the St. Croix Valley schools come together with their top musicians to perform an incredible concert. The best musicians of each ensemble are hand selected by their teachers to make up an ensemble of approximately 100 students. The teachers also select a guest conductor to come and rehearse with the students for two days. With only two days of rehearsals the students come together and perform a complete concert with five pieces from varying difficulties and genres. This year’s guest conductor was Matthew Gregg an Assistant Director at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville. This year’s SCC honors band students include Brittney Nabors, Anne Loewel, Maggie Bodish, Mayan Huberty, Chelsea Hernandez-Hollembeak, Haley Doonan, Claire Hueg, Blake Flettre, Xena VanDusartz, Mikenna Laventure, Sam Thompson, Ethan Wert, Mark Dingmann, John Dingmann, Eugene Hanson, and Kevin Roland. Their concert can be found on the SCC HS band website at https://sites.google.com/site/stcroixcentralbands/.home.
