PC Band Program Sends Students to Intercollegiate Honor Band

January 26, 2022

The Presbyterian College Band Program is sending for the first time three students to participate in the Intercollegiate Honor Band in Columbia, SC, during the conference of the South Carolina Music Educators Association, February 3rd to 5th.

Noah Burkett (saxophone), Anna West (bassoon), and Rachel Vondergeest (French horn), will represent the Presbyterian College Band Program and our county in this important music event. Their busy schedules will include rehearsals in the morning, afternoon and evening. After two and half days of rehearsals, they will take the stage on Saturday (Feb. 5) and perform to a large crowd of music educators and general audience.

Noah, Anna, and Rachel are very active instrumentalists at Presbyterian College. They perform with the PC Wind Ensemble, Chamber Winds, and Jazz Band.

Dr. Giovani Briguente, PC Director of Bands, says: “We could not be better represented! Noah, Anna, and Rachel are fantastic students and absolutely great people! Everyone is going to love their music and personalities!”

Good luck to Noah, Anna and Rachel!
