Three Northwestern music students chosen for honor band

January 19, 2016

Three Northwestern Oklahoma State University music students have been selected to participate in the Oklahoma Music Educators Association’s (OMEA) Intercollegiate Honor Band this week in Tulsa.

Earning a spot in this band are Arthur Bohlmann, Hooker senior playing trombone; Autumn Detamore, El Reno freshman playing saxophone; and Amanda Metcalf, Enid sophomore playing clarinet.

“This intercollegiate honor band is an elite ensemble comprised of students from dozens of universities throughout Oklahoma,” Dr. Marc Decker, director of instrumental music and music education, said. “I’m sure they will represent our school and community with great pride.”

Decker and the students will leave for Tulsa Wednesday where the students will be in rehearsals Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning.

The honor band will then perform in concert Thursday at 2 p.m. in the Doubletree Hotel Ballroom. Admission will be charged.
