Congratulations to Nicholas Binkowski, senior percussionist at Walton High School, for being accepted to the following Honor Bands: University of Alabama at Birmingham, Auburn University, Samford University, and The University of Alabama. To be accepted to each Honor Band, he had to complete an application and be recommended by the band director, Mr. Muller. Once at each Honor Band, he had to complete anaudition to earn a band and chair placement. At UAB Honor Band, he placed in the top band, third chair. He will be attending The University of Alabama Honor Band at the end of January. Nicholas has chosen to not attend Auburn and Samford Honor Bands so he can focus on his solo and ensemble repertoire.
