Senior Garrett Johannsen and Sophomore Tristan Doan auditioned and were accepted to the Colorado State University state-wide honor band this year. Almost three hundred students from across the state auditioned for the limited spots in the ensemble. This weekend, these top musicians got together at CSU in Fort Collins to work with Dr. Scott Tobias, the director of West Virginia University’s band program. After only a day and a half of rehearsing together, the band performed a concert on Saturday, December 8 in Griffin Concert Hall at CSU
Garrett Johannsen also just became the first student in Academy history to audition and make the Colorado All-State Philharmonic Orchestra! He’ll perform with the group this coming February.
