Eighteen students from the CFHS band traveled to Monticello for the All-Region band clinic. All-Region began on Fri., January 24, to Sat., January 25. The clinic was held at Drew Central.

Students arrived and began practicing at 1 PM and took water and a dinner break. The next day, they performed the music they practiced the previous day.

Sharissa Olivares, a senior saxophone player, said that she learned how to fully understand her horn.

“I enjoyed making new friends and playing my instrument,” Olivares recalled. She said that she learned new techniques and tricks to her saxophone.

“The clinic was really fun,” said Kaitlyn Johnson, a sophomore flute player. “It gave me something to do.”
