Students named to all-district band

March 9, 2014 

Three Cary Academy students were selected for Central District Bandmasters Association’s All-District Bands.

Freshman Pranay Tankala on clarinet and eighth-graders Ben Lipson on trumpet and Will Snider on snare drum were chosen after auditions in January.

For the audition, each student had to learn a solo piece, memorize and play seven or eight major scales with arpeggios and sight-read a piece of music.

Bands for each age category held clinics with rehearsals and a concert earlier this year.
