The Decatur band was admitted into the Southeastern Regional Concert Festival after last year’s large group performance evaluation, LGPE, was successful since the band received all superiors in their division.

This year’s performance features new music and a newly arranged oboe Concerto designed by the band director himself, Robert Truan.

The new music is entirely grade six, which, for senior and french horn player Jackson Moore, “is comparable to what colleges and professional orchestras play.”

The band is performing at Georgia State and is featured in the last time slot, 8:15 pm, which is generally considered the most prestigious.

Despite the band’s immense success thus far, challenges persist. High school graduation ensures an ever changing litany of young musicians.

Throughout the changes, clarinetist and junior, Alex Thorsrud, believes the band is in good hands.

“It’s gonna be interesting because a bunch of people are graduating after next year,” Thorsrud said. “Mr. Truan is a really good band director though, so the program will remain strong.”

The band is scheduled to play the last time slot of the event on March 23, 2017.
