Three students represented Tahoe Truckee Unified School District recently at California Music Educator’s 19th Annual Northern Section Junior High Honor Band, held at California State University, Chico.

This annual event selects student musicians from sixth through ninth grade from a large area of Northern California.

Truckee High School freshman Avery Fournier and Sierra Bohnet, students of Mr. Jesse Steele, were selected to play flute. Jordy Guldman, an eighth-grader at Alder Creek Middle School, and student of Mr. Randy Humphreys, was selected to play trumpet.

The students dedicated two intense days to work together with other young musicians from around Northern California and refine six varied musical pieces. They worked under the direction of guest conductor, Mr. Dan Neece, who recently retired after a 40 year career of teaching music in Redding, Calif.

The two day event culminated with an well-attended evening concert for the Chico community.
