An Iowa Mennonite School sophomore will join other performers from the region at this weekends SEIBA Honor Band performance. IMS 10th grader Anne Buckwalter of Wellman joined about 800 other junior high and high school students earlier this month in Fairfield for the Southeast Iowa Bandmasters Association Honor Band auditions. IMS Music Teacher Josh Tyson says she’ll be third chair clarinetist, which means she gave the third best performance at the auditions, at the concert at Iowa City West High School on Saturday. Tyson notes that while this is a great achievement, he isn’t surprised, adding that she’s a hard worker and talented musician.
