7th-grader performs in state honor band

John McGrory, a La Entrada Middle School seventh-grader, recently performed with the prestigious California Band Director's Association All-State Junior High School Concert Band.

A talented trumpet player, John tried out for the honor band last fall by submitting an audition tape that involved preparing three scales and one trumpet solo, said La Entrada music teacher Colin Cooper.

The band performed an evening concert in Fresno after three days of rehearsals. His parents, grandparents, two siblings and school band director were in attendance at the final concert "to cheer him on," Mr. Cooper said.
