  • Congratulations Band!

    On Friday, March 12 the 8th Grade Symphonic Band and three awesome 7th grade percussionists traveled to Carowinds and performed a concert for a panel of three judges. The judges evaluated the performance and gave the band a rating of "Superior," the highest rating a performing ensemble can receive. The students were model citizens throughout the entire day, and did an amazing job of representing the band program, Horton Middle, and Chatham County in the best possible manner. Way to go, Wildcats!
