Johnston County Alliance Winds Ensemble, a collaboration of members from the West Johnston and Corinth Holders High bands and ensembles, became regional champions at the WGI Spartanburg Regional Championship.
For the 2017 winter season, members from the West Johnston and Corinth Holders High bands and ensembles came together to create a new performing ensemble. This collaboration is the first of its kind for Johnston County and also local and international circuits for high school wind groups.
The Johnston County Alliance made their debut at the WGI Spartanburg Regional Championship in Dorman, SC. where they performed in preliminary and finals, and they became the regional champions with a record setting score of 83.9.
The opportunity for collaboration allowed all of the students involved to receive a variety of instruction from the directions and staff of each program.
The students from both schools devoted months of their time to becoming the best musicians and performers they could be.
The Alliance will now travel to Highland Heights, KY. on March 25 to compete at the WGI Mid-East Power Regional Championship. They will end the season in Dayton, Ohio at the WGI World Championships on April 22.
