8th Graders Chosen for All-Iowa Honor Band

Eight Linn-Mar 8th graders are among the 21 students selected from over 40 northeast Iowa Middle Schools to perform in the All-Iowa Eighth Grade Honor Band. Two students were chosen as alternates.
The Honor Band is the highest honor an eighth-grade band member can receive in the state of Iowa. They auditioned while participating in the northeast district honor band in Oelwein.
They will join 132 of the best eighth-grade musicians from around the state on Thursday, May 11th when they perform at the Iowa Bandmasters Conference (IBA) in Des Moines.
Congratulations to the students for their hard work and dedication!
