David, Eli and Kyra at JanFest


David Kim (2022, bassoon), Eli Gearheard (2021, flute), and Kyra Strakes (2023, clarinet) represented Blessed Trinity at the 70th annual January High School Band Festival, “JanFest”, hosted at UGA’s Hugh Hodgson School of Music.  These students were nominated by BT high school band director, Brad Nelsen, to participate in the weekend events joining more than 1,800 students from 130 schools throughout the South. Over the course of the four day event, they enjoyed several feature performances by guest high school bands as well as various UGA ensembles. During the festival they each took part in instrument clinics, auditions and rehearsals with guest conductors to perform an end-of-festival concert in one of eight bands on Sunday, January 19th.  Congratulations to our Titans of the Arts!
