The 54th Annual North Jersey Area Band Concert was held at Mount Olive High School on Sunday January 14, 2018. As previously posted, five students from West Essex successfully auditioned for the Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band. The ensembles were conducted by Professor Heidi Sarver, Professor of Music at the University of Delaware, and Mr. Rich Barrieres, Director of Bands at Jefferson Township High School, respectively.
Further, the following students successfully auditioned for North Jersey Region Band:
- TJ Viola – French Horn – Symphonic Band, 2nd Chair
- Gabriel Ruszala – Trombone – Symphonic Band, 7th Chair
- Brian Shields – Euphonium – Symphonic Band, 2nd Chair
- Sidan Ngo – Mallets – Wind Ensemble, 3rd Chair
As we’ve previously said, successfully auditioning for a chair in these ensembles is no small feat; the West Essex Band Boosters applaud your efforts, as well as all those who auditioned! The Region Band Concert will be held on January 28, 2018 at 3:00pm at Parsippany Hills High School. Visit NJSMA.com for more information.
