This year Northview High School in Brazil hosted the IBA Central Southwest All District band. The All-District band is open to 9th through 12th grade band members and provides an excellent opportunity for those students to be recognized for their talents.

This year Chloe Mannan was selected to participate from Cloverdale. The process for All-District selection begins at each local school where the musicians apply to participate. Those applications and their director’s recommendation are considered when a selection committee sets the group roster. Students who have the honor of participating in the ensemble receive a letter of congratulations and music to practice prior to the event.

On Saturday, students arrived and began to practice together for the first time. Directors from many of the schools involved helped with preparation on that day by rehearsing students in sectionals.

The weekend culminates with a concert performance by the group on Sunday afternoon at 4:00pm.

Congratulations to Chloe Mannan for her effort and a great performance!
