Five members of the South Tattnall Middle School (STMS) Band were nominated for the 2022 Sweet Onion Area Honor Band.
The Sweet Onion Area Honor Band is comprised of middle school musicians from over 24 counties in Southeast Georgia.
Of the 23 Tattnall County band members, five were eighth graders from STMS. Kevin Baxter (trumpet), Brianna Walker (tuba), Brendon Ward (percussion), Dixie Waters (saxophone), and Grace Ann Manning (tuba) were chosen by director nominations.
These students traveled to Vidalia High School, where they had the opportunity to work with guest conductors. Students rehearsed for two days in preparation for a concert to demonstrate their collective work.
The STMS Spring Band Concert will be held on May 17 at 7 p.m. in the STMS Gym.
