Students from the Riverton High School band recently returned from participating in the All-State Band in Evanston. The all state honors group consists of three different ensembles -- choir, orchestra and band -- with 115 students selected for each group. Students are accepted into the ensembles by performing prepared music during a live audition. After rehearsing for a day and a half, they then put on a concert. Riverton High School band director Aric Hageman is pleased with this year's results and couldn't be more proud of his students. "The students had a great time this year and the performance was fantastic," Hageman said. "When you get 115 of the best student musicians together, you expect nothing but a great performance. They definitely rose to the standard." All-state band students are: Misty Waters, bassoon Sam Myers, clarinet Eric Haines, flute Annie Phister, horn Thomas Pointon, oboe Kathryn Thayer, oboe Chancey Wilczewski, percussion Eli Horyza, percussion Bryan Sanders, tenor sax Quentin Lance, trombone Sean Thornton, trombone Zachary Miller, trumpet Chance Hinkle, trumpet Sarah McDonald, trumpet Tom Amend, trumpet The marching band received its fifth year of consecutive superior ratings at the State Marching Festival. The jazz band recently performed at the Casper Jazz Festival and received superior ratings. "We have had a great year, and our students do a wonderful job," Hageman said.
