Diana S., a senior at Holston High School, has demonstrated her musical proficiency with an exemplary showing at the Virginia All-State band tryouts at James Madison University in Harrisonburg. The event was held on February 24th and over 1,000 high school musicians attended the audition. Dianna placed 25th among bassoon players.
Diana has high aspirations when she launches her college career. Although she has not totally decided on which college or university she will attend, she is certain that she will major in engineering and minor in music. She hopes to continue her performing career as a member of a college marching band. Holston’s faculty and staff congratulate Diana and her band director, Logan Childress, for her strong showing at JMU.
