In December, several 8th graders from Heard County Middle School went to Troy University to take part in the 12th annual Southeastern United States Middle School Honor Band.

Participating in the honor band is a great experience for young musicians. It gives the students the opportunity to play new and exciting music with a new team of performers and be taught by a new conductor.

Competition for honor bands is great, being chosen over many other interested musicians is a high recognition.

HCMS band students competed against 300 students from 64 schools. Four out of seven HCMS students placed in the Gold band (top band), and three HCMS band students placed in the Silver band (2nd band).
