Four members of the Fulton High School band will perform this Saturday among 104 other top players across the state as part of Missouri’s top honor band.
Sophomore Josh VanNorman and seniors Anna Fink, Genevieve Randall and Fern Stevermer were selected to the Missouri All-State Band during December tryouts. The band is currently rehearsing in Osage Beach, and will hold their only performance 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26 at Tan-Tar-A Family Resort there.
FHS Band Director Kelly Neudecker said Fulton has sent students to the band before and was proud of her four students going this year.
“We’ve been very blessed to have a lot of kids who are very motivated and talented, and have several kids who take lessons and have the support of parents, which makes all the difference in the world,” Neudecker said. “Our administration is very supportive of the program.”
