The Adair County Band is honored again this year to have two of its members selected for the KMEA All-State Band. The music community considers this honor to be the highest accomplishment for an individual student in the state of Kentucky.


Starting in October and November students have their first audition at the state district level. KMEA has divided the state evenly into 12 districts with Adair County being in district 10. The first round of competition takes places during the middle of marching season so students have to push themselves to learn and polish even more music during an already rigorous schedule. At the district level students are either recommended or not recommended to advance to the final round of auditions. Adair County amazingly had eight students make it into the final round of auditions which took place this past weekend at John Hardin High School in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.

Those talented students were Brittany Lee, Kieren Ussery, Kyndal Caldwell, Brittany Curry, Chloe Cheng, Brandon Breeding, Sydney Bright, and Bailey Harris. To make it to this level of the All-State competition is an honor. And each of our students did a wonderful job in their blind auditions which means the judge and student cannot see each other. This is done to ensure there is no bias. We are proud of all of their performances.

It is with great pride that we announce that Senior French Horn Sydney Bright and Sophomore French Horn Bailey Harris were both selected for the All-State Band this year. They will be a part of the KMEA In-Service Conference held in February. They will rehearse throughout the conference with a guest conductor and perform on Saturday, February 8th at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. We wish both Sidney and Bailey the best of luck and hope they enjoy this wonderful experience! - Shamarie Claiborne, for the ADAIR Band
