Seven students from Chagrin Falls High School have been selected to participate in the 49th annual Ohio Band Directors Conference Honor Band (OBDC) at the University of Akron. All activities will be conducted virtually, including sectionals with university faculty and submission of performance video/audio.
Selected students include seniors Darya Rebeta (piccolo), Maris Walter (clarinet), Ryan Brackett (trumpet), Alec Davis (alto saxophone) and Sara Hartle (French horn) and juniors Maddie Ferguson (clarinet) and Sam Clark (trumpet).
This year’s OBDC guest composer is Brant Karrick, director of bands at Northern Kentucky University. He is a noted composer for all levels of ensembles and genres. The OBDC Virtual Honor Band will prepare and record Dr. Karrick’s J.S. Jig for performance during the virtual conference on Dec. 5.
