RIDGEFIELD — Eight students from Ridgefield High School were recently honored for their accomplishments in music.
Freshman Olivia DesRochers; sophomore, Caleb Coine; junior, Natalie Smith; and seniors, Sydney Dean, Samantha Fenton, Spencer Hess, Eli Holter, and Emma Schmidt, all were selected for the North County Honor Band.
In January, the students will perform in the Honor Band’s annual concert at Hockinson High School. The concert is open to the public and is free.
The North County Honor Band is made up of middle school and high school students from Hockinson, Prairie, Battle Ground, Ridgefield, La Center, Woodland, Camas and Washougal high schools. Applicants are chosen based on their musical accomplishments and band director’s recommendation.
Students selected for the opportunity receive a quality band experience that challenges them as musicians of a high-level honor group, performing with their peers from other school districts and working with esteemed guest conductors.
Two of the students were also selected for the Washington All-State Band and will perform with other honorees at the 2020 Washington Music Educators Association (WMEA) Honor Groups Concerts.
