The Cheatham County Honor Band performed a concert on Saturday, March 5, 2022. The event took place at the Harpeth High School auditorium.
The Honor Band is comprised of select students from the district’s three middle school and three high schools. The six respective band directors joined together to organize the musical performance.
To prepare, the young musicians spent all day Friday, March 4 and the morning of Saturday, March 5 rehearsing for the concert with guest conductors: Gary Merritts and Dr. Douglas Martin.
Cheatham County Director of Schools Dr. Cathy Beck and Cheatham County Mayor Kerry McCarver welcomed the guests and guest conductors.
"We want to thank Ashland City Mercantile, 50 Egg Music, and an anonymous donor for providing lunch for the students on Friday during the rehearsal," the district said. Other Honor Band sponsors were Bandwagon Music and King’s Playsets.
The concert was free and open to the public.
