Arundel High School Places 11 Musicians to All-County Concert Band
Eleven musicians from Arundel High School earned spots on the 2012-2013 Anne Arundel County Public Schools “All-County” Concert Band, following auditions held January 3 at North County High School.
Earning spots for this year’s all-county ensemble were seniors Emily Schulz (oboe), Amanda Hautmann (flute), Jeremiah Quijote (clarinet), William McHarg (tenor sax), Brandon Rafsky (baritone horn), Adedayo Ogunbajo (baritone horn) and Victoria Banos (trumpet); sophomore Brian Howard (trombone); and freshmen Gregory Spencer (trumpet), Madeline Beaudry (trombone) and Brian Musliner (clarinet).
For Hautmann and Quijote, the selection marks the fourth time the two woodwind players have earned all-county concert band honors. Quijote had also earned a selection to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra “Side-by-Side” program earlier this year.
Rafsky’s second selection to the ensemble is also a special one in that he was named as the baritone horn section leader for the 2012-2013 band. Ogunbajo, McHarg, Banos and Howard also earned their second selection into the all-county concert ensemble this year.
Schulz earned her first selection as an all-county instrumentalist, but has also earned all-county and all-state music honors as a vocalist. For Beaudry, the first-time selection to the all-county concert band adds to her selection as a trombonist for the 2012-2013 all-county orchestra. Spencer and Musliner are also a first-time selectees.
The 2012-2013 AACPS “All-County” High School Concert Band, as well as the 2012-2013 AACPS “All-County” Middle School Concert Band will perform on Saturday, February 2 at North County High School. Performances begin at 7 p.m. and admission is $5 at the door.
