Two chosen for FFA band
Alto saxophonist Carissa Shields from Centre and trombonist Aidan Cairns from Marion were among 28 FFA members selected to perform in the State FFA Band at last week’s convention in Manhattan.
Band members were required to submit audition tapes and recommendations from music instructors. They rehearsed for two days before the convention and performed at sessions both days.
Cairns, who was selected for a second consecutive year, introduced several of the songs performed by the band.
