Muellenbach, who plays the alto saxophone, and Stengal, who plays the clarinet, were both chosen by audition from the top high school musicians in the quad state region. The finale concert was held February 5 at the Aalfs Auditorium on the USD Campus.
The conductor for the Honor Symphonic Band was Dr. Todd Cranson of USD. Carol Brittin Chambers from Texas Lutheran University was the guest composer-conductor. Chambers was most recently named the winner of the 2019 Women Band Directors International Composition Competition.
