A number of Hart District music students will be among the top student musicians from across the state performing in honor bands which will perform for the California Band Directors Association (CBDA) and California Association for Music Education (CAME) conventions this month and March.

Students are chosen by audition and represent the top instrumentalists from junior high and high schools across California.

The High School All-state Honor Band will perform in Fresno this month at the CBDA Convention. Local students chosen for the honor include Andrew Arensman (French horn) and Ronny Sunnaa (euphonium) from West Ranch High School; Cameron Bridston (trombone), Danica Cardey (soprano clarinet), Sean Kiernan (soprano clarinet) and Cameron West (French horn) from Hart High school; and Enrique Chavez (tenor saxophone) from Valencia High School.

CBDA also selects a Junior High School Honor Band, which also will perform this month in Fresno. Hart District musicians chosen for the junior high band include Ryan Ching (soprano clarinet), Sharanne Green (oboe) and Jamie Kwon (flute) from Rancho Pico Junior High; Kenneth Eernisse (euphonium) from Placerita Junior High; and Melissa Gramling (flute) and Danny Kim (soprano clarinet) from Rio Norte Junior High.

CBDA is a professional organization for school band instructors throughout the state. One of the primary functions is hosting the California All-State Honor Bands. Once a year auditions are held and students selected from all parts of this state to put together some of the finest high school and junior high honor bands in the nation. Conductors are chosen by membership from around the world.

Four Hart District students also have been chosen for the High School Honor Band which will perform in Ontario next month at the CAME conference. They are Adon Biggs (euphonium), Joyce Choi (flute) and Christy Zach (tuba) from West Ranch High School; and Jennifer Chik (bass clarinet), Hart High School.
