Chamber Winds Named Semi-finalists in The American Prize National Music Competition

The American Prize A year ago on the March 13 weekend of 2020, our Cuthbertson Chamber Winds, Percussion Ensemble, Brass Ensemble, and Clarinet Choir were scheduled to perform at the Music For All National Chamber and Percussion festivals in Indianapolis, Indiana. 

Circumstances prevented these performances but not before the Chamber Winds were able to play their final school concert the day before quarantine dismissal. 

That Chamber Winds recording and those students have been accepted as Semi-finalists in The American Prize National Music Competition, Chamber Music Performance Division.

Band Director Todd Ebert said, "A heartfelt thank you to each student who performed in these ensembles and a hearty congratulations to our 2020 Chamber Winds Musicians. This is a great achievement for Cuthbertson High School, Union County Public Schools, and our CHS Band program.  There are a number of entries from across the United States in our division and we are only able to use the concert recording we made, so wish us luck as we move into finals competition in the upcoming months."

Congratulations to all!
