Reeds Spring High School sophomore trumpet player Robert Offutt has been selected as a member of the 2017-2018 Missouri All-State Band. According to the Missouri Bandmasters Association, more than 1,400 students auditioned for the All-State Band. Only 109 students were accepted into the elite ensemble, including 11 trumpet players.
"This is a great honor, which Robert has earned through hundreds of hours of hard work," said Reeds Spring High School Band Director Josh Garoutte. "This essentially puts Robert in the top one percent of high school trumpet players in the state. This is truly an achievement which most band students never reach."
The All-State Band will perform at the Missouri Music Educators Association Conference on January 27, 2018 at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach.
