Paul Seitz ’18 Takes 2nd Chair at All State Music Conference

Congratulations to junior Paul Seitz, who auditioned for and received 2nd chair in the All State Band for trombone at the All State Music Conference in Peoria

The completion began on Thursday, January 26, 2017, with morning auditions.  Rehearsals followed on Thursday evening and all day Friday, with performances on Saturday.  Paul was pleasantly surprised to find himself practicing with a conductor he had worked with previously in the Quinlan Fabish Honor Band in November, 2015.  This band performed with celebrity musician Doc Severinsen, former leader of the NBC Orchestra on the Tonight Show.

Congratulations to Paul on his outstanding accomplishment; he is the first Crusader who has made it this far at ILMEA.
