In January 2018 six Hampton Park Christian School students auditioned to participate in the South Carolina Band Directors Association (SCBDA) Region 1 Band. Region 1 includes all schools (public and private) in the following counties: Greenville, Oconee, Pickens, and Spartanburg.
For the audition students memorize scales and terms, perform a prepared etude on their instrument, and sight read two excerpts.
In Region 1 there were 152 alto saxes and 79 trombones registered to audition. Two HPCS students Job K. (Alto Sax) and Samuel L. (Trombone) earned positions as alternates for the Region 1 Honor band. The students will perform a concert tomorrow, Feb 24, 2018, at 4:00 P.M., in the historic Twitchell Auditorium at Converse College (Spartanburg, SC).
