The students were selected as winners of the 2010 Young Artists Competition sponsored by the 191st Army Band – the “Band of the Wild West” – based in Dublin. As part of the honor, the Liberty Band and the 191st Army Band will host a joint concert sometime during the 2010-11 school year. The band also received a $500 grant to help repair instruments.
“We were so surprised to be selected for this honor,” said Liberty Band Director Carey Hurst. “Receiving this honor is a great compliment to our music program.”
