In a rigorous process that sorted through approximately 900 student auditions, several Walla Walla High School band members were selected to participate in the 2013 Western International Band Clinic Nov. 22-25 at the Sea-Tac DoubleTree Inn in Seattle.

Chosen from a field of competitors from around the Northwest and Canada were Wa-Hi’s Kyli Humphreys, senior, french horn, chosen for the third time; Brandon Rohde, senior, alto sax, second time, and first-timers Kara Guizar, senior, trumpet, first time; Michael Dandrea, junior, trombone and Hannah Cabasco, freshman, clarinet.

They are among the 650 students selected to play in four different honor bands that weekend while being directed by top-flight college directors from around the world.

Their instructor is Andrew Ueckert, director of Wa-Hi bands.

Walla Walla High School Chamber Drama class students performed a version of “The Great Pumpkin” and other Halloween skits for Berney Elementary first- and second-graders.

Coached by drama teacher Brian Senter, students performed for about 90 minutes.
