Two Lewis School Students Each Rank Number One in All-State Band

Lewis School twins, Andrew and Tacy Colón, each ranked number one in the state of Florida on their respective instruments at the Florida Music Educators Association convention in Tampa, Florida.

Andrew and Tacy, eighth grade Lewis band students, were selected by audition to participate in the convention's Florida Middle School All-State Band which performed on January 11, 2014.

On the first day of the All-State convention, each student auditioned one last time for chair placement within their section.  Both of the Lewis band students earned the honor of being placed first chair in their sections. Andrew placed first out of the eight All-State tubists, and Tacy placed first out of the thirty-two All-State clarinetists.

Congratulations to these two talented musicians!
