Students to Audition for All-State Band Honors
January 6th, 2014

Congratulations to senior Martinique Edwards and sophomore Matteo DeLurgio, who were selected for the District IV Honor Band. The students will participate in the Georgia All-State Band auditions this Saturday, January 11. 

Martinique Edwards, four year band member at St. Pius X, is the trumpet section leader for the Marching Golden Lions and participates in both cross country and track & field. She was awarded ninth chair placement for the District IV Honor Band event, which will take place at Stephenson High School.

Matteo DeLurgio marched with the St. Pius X drumline for the second consecutive year. He received the highest score among his freshmen and sophomore competitors during his first all-state audition. As a result of this, Matteo was selected as the first chair percussionist for the district event. If selected for All-State Band, he will be the first percussionist to represent St. Pius X with the elite group of musicians.

Best of luck to Martinique and Matteo this weekend! Be sure to check back for more information following the auditions.
