8 FCHS Musicians Selected to All-State Band
From FCHS Band Director, Josh Toppass,

"This weekend, many of our band students went through the last step of the All-State Band audition process. These students worked very hard and had to audition against about 900 of the best high school instrumentalists in the state of Kentucky. Most schools are lucky if they get one or two students in. I am happy to report that Franklin County High School had EIGHT students accepted into this year’s All-State Band. They are:

Blake Oerther, All-State Symphonic Band, 4th Chair Trombone
Connor Moore, All-State Orchestra, 1st Chair Tuba
Celia Ritter, All-State Orchestra, 2nd Chair Oboe
Christopher Dudley, All-State Concert Band, 10th Chair Trumpet
Mallory Hendricks, All-State Concert Band, 16th Chair Flute
Christian Higginbotham, All-State Concert Band, 5th Chair French Horn
Coleman Scott, All-State Jazz Band #1, 3rd Chair Trumpet
Brent Evans, All-State Jazz Band #2, 2nd Chair Bass Guitar

I cannot emphasize enough the level of the accomplishment achieved by these students. They are considered the best of in the state and will perform a concert in February with the other All-State Band students from across Kentucky.

Please congratulate these students if you see them."
