Cody Staff Writer mcody@plumasnews.corn The North Section Junior High Honor Band and Select Choir was held Jan. 16 and 17 at California State University Chico. The event featured talented students in grades six- nine from various Northern California communities, including Chester, Portola and Indian Valley. Lauryn Cordes, a ninth-grade student at Greenville High School, was Indian Valley's chorus representative. Portola and Chester schools were also represented. Felicity Syfrett, a freshman from Chester High School band, played clarinet. Elizabeth Sullens, in seventh grade, sang for CHS " chorus. Jordan Herbert and Austin Griffin, from Portola, on clarinet and trumpet, respectively, played with schoolmates Ricky Johnston, Stella Baty (bass clarinet), Noah Hardee (trumpet), Alison Hicks (clarinet) and Emily Walmer (baritone saxophone). "It's a big honor (to attend)," said Jane Brown, Chester music program director. She said the students must audition and be chosen to participate. Honor band and chorus students practice for a total of about 13 hours over the weekend, and perform back to back. Brown said Chester High School has been participating since 1977, but this was the first year in a while that Chester won an audition. Brown accompanied her students to the event, as did Portola music teachers Luke Barnes and Mary Cooligan. Marsha Roby accompanied Cordes. "They had terrific guest conductors, and the groups sounded fabulous," said Brown. The Chester High School music program led by Brown has had its share of struggles. Last fall, a donation from Our Savior Lutheran Church in Chester helped keep it afloat, allowing for repairs on instruments and the like.
