Six out of Twelve All-State Guitarists are Ours!

Our proud Guitar teacher, Ben Broughton, congratulates the following students for making the 2021-22 SC Music Educators Association (SCMEA) All-State Guitar Ensemble:
 
Rion Williams (3rd time making this ensemble)
Bradley Wilkinson (1st time)
Sean Adams (3rd time)
Shane Keup (1st Time)
Ellie Spicer (2nd time)
Wyatt Merland (1st time)
 
Students statewide submitted video auditions in November. An All-State committee, made up of a panel of guitar professors from across the state, selected the twelve top scorers for this ensemble. Do the math, and you will note that we have half of the twelve right here in Mr. Broughton's classroom!
 
The ensemble will again be featured in a video produced by the Virtual Guitar Orchestra and Augustine Strings and are scheduled to be the headlining performance at this year's SCMEA's Guitarfest in May.
