Milton Band Wins 2014 Excellence Award
In addition to performing its fall concert Oct. 9, the Milton High School band was also awarded the 2014 Exemplary Performance Award by the Georgia Music Educators Association.
"We are very proud to have received this award, and I congratulate all of our student musicians who have put in many hours of hard work to achieve this distinction," said Chis Shumick, Milton's director of bands.
The award is presented annually to a program that demonstrates excellence and achievement in all aspects of band performance, including earning superior ratings at performance evaluations, participation in solo and ensemble and having students participate in all of the all-state band and orchestra programs.
Individual members of the Milton band have also been selected to the Georgia Music Educators Association All-State Band and All-State Orchestra, the Governor's Honors Program and the District Honor Band, as well as other collegiate and local honor ensembles.
