Students from around Missouri flocked to Hickman High School in Columbia on Saturday, December 3 for the All-State Band auditions. With over 1,250 auditions for 150 musicians to perform in the All-State band, jazz band, and orchestra wind and percussion players, stakes were high for all.

Kirksville R-III School District is proud to have two performing members and one alternate make All-State.

Esme AuBuchon, senior clarinet player, and Isaiah Korte, senior tuba player, will be performing in the Missouri All-State Band. Benjamin Platte, a sophomore trumpet player, is an alternate and could be called to perform if one of the all-state trumpet members is not able to fulfill their obligations.

Great job, Tigers!
