New Reagan Brumley Fund Founded by Tav and Maureen Lupton

Tav
The Highlander Band Boosters are profoundly grateful to Tav and Maureen Lupton for their incredibly generous $150,000.00 gift to the newly created Reagan Brumley fund for the Highlander Band. The check was presented to the outgoing HBB Executive Board on May 10th at their final board meeting, and made public to all boosters and band members at the 2018 Band Banquet. The purpose of the donation is to "maintain the level of achievement the band has attained under Reagan Brumley." Mr. Brumley was speechless when the check was revealed.

Upon receiving the donation, Mr. Brumley said, "I'm overwhelmed by this significant gift that will provide many unique opportunities to broaden instructional enrichment for our band students."

Thank you, Maureen and Tav, for your years as band parents, and for the lasting legacy you leave the band as Andrew graduates!

Peter Davies Places 3rd in National Blount-Slawson Young Artists Competition 

Congratulations to Peter Davies for finishing in third place in the Blount-Slawson Young Artists Competition in Montgomery, AL. This is one of the most prestigious youth competitions in the country for talented string and wind musicians. The first place winner, a violinist, also won the concerto competition with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Peter is in very good company!

Peter submitted a recording of the Mozart Oboe Concerto to qualify for this competition. The preliminary round had about 80 musicians; ten were selected for finals. The finalists performed their concertos for an audience and ten (yes, ten!) judges. They were all fabulous! 

It is very difficult to compete against string players because their instruments have a huge range, can play more than one note at a time, and are very versatile. Peter's artistic presentation won over the audience and judges alike. It was very exciting to meet all these talented musicians. Congratulations, Peter!
