JH District Honor Band

January 11, 2020

Tonight the Neosho Junior High bands sent 78 students to Joplin High School to audition for the Southwest Missouri Music Educators Association District Honor Band.  The students did outstanding!  Last year we had 27 students make the band and 6 alternates.  That tied our school recognition record of 33 set in 2017.  This year we broke that record.  We had 27 students make the band, and 7 selected as alternates with a total of 34 recognized.  In the preliminary numbers it also looks as though the Neosho Junior High School may have more students selected to this band than any other school.  However, some rooms where we did not have instruments competing had not yet been tallied.  The students will participate in an all day clinic and perform in a concert with the district honor band now scheduled for Saturday, February 1st in Carl Junction due to the weather adjusting the high school district honor band schedules.  Please congratulate the following students:
