Congratulations to our very own Caleb Cameron for making it into the 2018 Michigan Middle School All-State Band. His accomplishment is a 1st in PCA history and we are extremely proud of his hard work and amazing talent!
Out of the 2,614 auditionees, Caleb was able to advance as one of the seven tubas in his ensemble. On January 25, 2018, in Grand Rapids at the DeVos Center and Amway Grand Hotel, Caleb will take his seat among the finest musicians from literally every part of our state. They will rehearse under the instruction of esteemed conductor, Robert Herrings. On January 27th at 8:00 am, the All-State Band will perform the following pieces:
Imaginarium by Randall D. Standridge
Rippling Watercolors by Brian Balmages
Travelin’ Music arr. Robert Sheldon
March of the Buccaneers by Victor Flowers
Arabian Dances by Roland Barrett
The performances by these students will be a showcase of what is happening in our Michigan schools bands and orchestras. We are grateful to PCA Band Director, Michael Hejka, for his dedication and excellent instruction that has made it possible for Caleb to reach this high level of achievement.
