FHSD Students Make All-State Concert and Jazz Bands
FHSD Students Make All-State Concert and Jazz Bands

Band can be a metaphor for life. It takes practice to get good at it; and when things get you down, when you skip a beat or hit the wrong note, you have to keep pushing forward to succeed. Failure is not an option when you truly give it your all. That is the attitude of the outstanding band students in the Francis Howell School District, as well as why we have some of the best bands in the state. If you’re looking for further proof, FHSD had six students make the All-State Concert and Jazz Bands. Francis Howell North had three students named to the All-State Concert Band (Ashley Raster, Clarinet 9th chair; Arianna Chaves, Clarinet 12th chair; Dominic Schneider, Tuba 2nd chair), and one earned an honorable mention in the All-State Jazz Band (Grant Argent, jazz guitar). Francis Howell Central, meanwhile, had two students earn spots, one in each band. Laurel Ammond will play French Horn for the Concert Band, and Sam Eckhoff was named an alternate in the Jazz Band (Jazz Bass).
