All Rowan County Band plays today

The Rowan-Salisbury School System’s best high school musicians will blend their talents this afternoon during a free concert at Carson High School.
The concert takes place at 2 p.m.
“We hope that you will be able to join us in this terrific event as we celebrate the work of our students and the recognition of March being Music in Our Schools Month,” Carson High Band Director Jeff Street wrote in an invitation to the public.
About 75 students from Rowan-Salisbury’s high schools were selected to perfrom in the 2008 Rowan County All County Honor Band.
“These students represent the best of the best in Rowan County, and we are extremely proud of their hard work and dedication to our band programs,” Street said.
To prepare for today’s concert, the students practiced throughout the day Friday, led by guest director William Petersen.
Petersen is a member of the faculty at Virginia Tech. He serves as assistant director of the Marching Virginians, director of the Hokie Pep Band and conductor of the University Campus Band.
