Fourteen fifth and sixth grade band students from Lenihan Intermediate participated in the Young Musicians Honor Band Saturday, Feb. 23, in Cedar Rapids.
Students were nominated by band director Paul Sibbel and selected by the honor band's committee. Students are chosen based on how far they are in their lesson book, extra activities (jazz band, solo/ensemble contest), leadership skills, range and ability.
The students rehearsed and performed a concert with students from 41 other schools. The event was held at Prairie Creek Intermediate School in the College Community School District, Cedar Rapids.
