HMS Band Students Selected to WMU Honors Band

Congratulations to HMS 8th Grade Band students, Simon Ozimek and Caelen Gray. Simon and Caelen were nominated and selected for Western Michigan University Honors Band where they rehearsed and performed under the direction of world-renowned composer, conductor, and music educator, Brian Balmages!

It meant a lot to me to be selected. It was an honor to play with the best players from around the state! - Simon

I learned a lot how to play together and to sound better. - Caelen
