High school musicians
hit just the right note
SPECIAL TO THE APPEAL TRIBUNE
Young musicians in the Silverton area
looking to take flight recently got a boost
from high-schoolers who took them un-
der their wing at a one-day band clinic.
Section leaders and other musicians
in Silverton High School’s bands spent
Saturday, Feb. 25 mentoring younger
students from six local schools. Fifteen
high schoolers gave instrument-specific
training and played alongside 36 young-
er musicians in this first annual band
Clinic leaders’ goals were to provide
young musicians with tools and tech-
niques to support musical development,
give them experience in advanced
sounds and ensembles, and give them a
chance to perform alongside advanced
students, said Frank Petrik, band direc-
“It was a pleasure to work with atten-
tive and talented young musicians. It
gave the leadership a clear perspective
of the future of our program,” he said.
Student leaders from the high school
included Marah Christenson, Melissa
Mattison, Maggie Kelley, Julie Golan,
Will Sisley, Sam Goggin and Noah West-
gate. To prepare them for this and other
roles, they attended leadership training
at the beginning of the year, Petrik said.
