            The two students who earned all-district band positions on multiple instruments had to choose which instrument to play during the clinic and concert, thus relinquishing their other position to another student.  Jacob Jankas chose tuba while Gareth Morton chose trumpet.  This is the fourth consecutive year for Gareth Morton to audition on two instruments and to be selected for the honor band on both instruments.
