Fair Oaks students perform in honor band

Nine students from Fair Oaks Middle School were selected for the 2013 River City Honor Band. The group performed April 20 in Mason City.

“This was a challenging and rewarding event for some of our first and second year band students,” Tara Smith, FOMS band instructor, said. “The kids enjoyed the experience and it gave them a taste of what being a member of an honor band is all about.”

Students representing Fair Oaks Middle School were – fifth-graders: Ben Richardson, trumpet; Nathanial Madden, trumpet; Jonathon Madden, baritone; Sydney Karr, clarinet; Kaydence Messerly, flute; sixth-graders: Kayla Smith, clarinet; Aaliyah Warland, flute; Kacee Gollob, trumpet; Caitlin Bellingtier, clarinet.
