All-State Band is comprised of the top 300 musicians in the State. Auditions are held in January at the district level, and again in April at the state level. Students are chosen for Red, White, or Blue Band and have three intensive days of rehearsal with a guest conductor, culminating in a final concert performance on the last day.
Tallassee High School had one student who represented the school system at the Alabama All-State Band in Mobile. Danielle Bird, a junior at Tallassee High School, was 7th chair trumpet in the White Band. Her conductor was Dr. Jamie Nix from Columbus State University.
Danielle was also a member of the Alabama All-State Choir this year, which is a double honor for the entire music program at THS. Congratulations, Danielle!
