LANIER COUNTY, GA – Over the past semester, Four Lanier County High School band students had the opportunity to be a part of the Valdosta State University Concert Band.
Nikki Schultz, Brittany Fountain, Jessica Moon, and Chris Petersen spent this semester at Valdosta State University rehearsing and performing with the band. Each student was recommended to play in the band by Lanier County band director, Matt Elder.
The students traveled to VSU twice a week after school to attend rehearsals. The Valdosta State Concert band consist of music majors and non-majors who are interested in wind band performance.
The music is more difficult than what most of the high school students have been accustomed to playing. During this semester the students will have the chance to play in two concerts.
