Three Kilgore College Ranger Band members have earned a seat in the Texas Community College Band Directors Association (TCCBDA) All-State Band.
Ranger Band members selected are Jadon Cherry (French horn) of Kilgore; Avery Taylor (tenor saxophone) of Hallsville; and Houston White (tuba) of Sabine.
The TCCBDA accepts recorded auditions each October for music students from Texas community colleges trying out for a seat in the all-state band.
“This is truly an accomplishment for these students,” said Brent Farmer, KC band director. “Their performance along with other ensembles showcased at the TMEA Clinic/Convention showcase the best of the best in the state of Texas.”
All-state band members will attend the Texas Music Educators Conference and Convention, Feb. 12-16, in San Antonio.
At the conference, students will audition again for seating placement and rehearse for a performance at the end of the conference.
