On Saturday, January 25, Ms. Rebecca Best, Director of Bands, accompanied eleven Cape Fear Academy middle school students to Middle School All District Auditions. This is a highly competitive event with both public and private school students competing. Fewer than 10% of auditioning students get selected into the All District Band.
Seven CFA students were selected as members of the Middle School All District Band:
- Amanda Lin, flute
- Ramsay Trask, flute
- Will Boggio, tenor sax
- Cole Boggio, trumpet
- Ford Wright, trumpet
- August Mills, baritone
- Eric Kanzinger, snare/percussion
Also notable, Cecilia DeMoss, flute, 2nd alternate.
These seven students will participate in the MS All District Band clinic and perform in concert Feb. 14-15 in Fayetteville, NC.
Two CFA students scored in the very highest level to qualify them for auditioning for NC All State Band—Amanda Lin and August Mills.
Along with Upper School band, this brings CFA’s total number of All District Band members to 14 for 2013-2014 with 5 students being all-state eligible.
