Sycamore will be well represented in the Ohio Music Education Association (OMEA) District 14 Junior High and High School Honor Bands this year! Sixteen members of the Sycamore 7th and 8th Grade Bands and 18 members of the Sycamore High School Bands will participate in our local OMEA Honor Bands this coming January. Students earned their placements in these groups by auditions which took place in November at Princeton High School. A special congratulations goes to  Brendan Flanagan, Adrian Oliver, and Kevin Sheetz for earning the distinction of being “First Chair” in the High School Symphonic Band.  This means they earned the highest score for their section on their audition. The Honor Bands will perform on January 8, 2017 at Princeton High School.  There will be 2 bands performing at each concert. High School Concert and Symphonic Honor Band performances begin at 3:00PM and 7th Grade and 8th Grade Honor Bands performances begin at 5:00PM.  Admission is $3 for adults and $2 for children/students/seniors.
