Celebrating Small Victories! New Horizons Band Spotlight

Congratulations to New Horizons Band clarinetists
Sandy Wolfmark and Russell Weinberg!


News Horizons Band Director Paul Hefner writes:

"Sandy has improved her playing significantly since the fall semester began. She increased her daily practice time using a lesson book as well as her band music. Sandy has truly brought her clarinet playing up several notches! Thank you, and congratulations on your excellent improvement!"

"Russell has shown a perseverance to be in the New Horizons Band. Although Russell was out sick for sometime in the fall, he kept in touch often. In fact, Russel just about returned to rehearsal before he was released from medical care! I have seen a perseverance and dedication in Russell that transfers well to his part of the New Horizons Band. Thank you and congratulations, Russell, for your outstanding involvement!"
