Congratulations to All-State Musicians

Each year, the Delaware Music Educators Association sponsors the Delaware All-State Band auditions for its ensembles. The strongest musicians are chosen based on their audition to perform in a concert with a renowned conductor. We had three current students selected this year for the junior band: seventh graders Evan Ni and Sonia Bala on clarinet and eighth grader Kaden Li on Alto Sax. For All-State Orchestra, seventh grader Jonathan Yang was selected in the Violin II category.

For the senior band, we had several alumni named. Aadi Varshney (class of 2020) was selected for clarinet, as were Brandon Liu and Lorenzo Santos (both class of 2021) on Alto Saxophone. Brandon scored higher than every other alto sax participant and earned himself first chair - quite an achievement. We are proud that these young men were all products of the music program here at Independence!

The DE All-State Band concert will be on Saturday, March 25 at Delaware State University in Dover. (Details here.)
