DCHS senior Britney Campbell recently performed with the 2010 Mid-State Honor Bands at MTSU. This is her sixth year to audition and be accepted as a performer for this group.
Mid-State is made up of the best players from all high schools in the middle Tennessee area. The students audition and are placed in a band according to how well they perform. The audition music is very difficult and students are given about 3 months to prepare the material.
Britney, a clarinet player, competed against nearly 200 other high school students to earn a position in one of the bands. The group began rehearsal on Thursday evening and by Saturday afternoon they performed over 30 minutes of music.
Jonathan Wright, Band Director for DeKalb County said, “Britney’s band performed very well! They were one of the best, if not the best, bands at Mid-State this year.” Britney will be attending Tennessee Tech University this fall where she will be pursuing a degree in education.
