ROUTE 66 HONOR BANDThirty-five members of the Marlow Middle School band were tapped for this year’s Route 66 Honor Band.
A total of 450 first- and second-year band students descended on Clinton High School on April 9 and were subsequently divided into two beginning bands and two second-year bands.
According to Marlow band director Billy Daniel, the bands were under the direction of some of the best teachers in the state as they rehearsed for five hours, then presented a concert for their parents at Clinton’s Tornado Dome. SIXTG-GRADE BAND
