Castle Bands Great Performances in February!

98 Events from CHS performed at the ISSMA Solo/Ensemble Festival on Saturday, 1/28/17. ALL students who performed at this optional event are better musicians today because of their practice and hard work. Of those events, 51 solos & 22 ensembles received a Gold rating in Group I, which is the hardest music category! These 73 events that qualified for the State event is up from last year’s 53 events!!! View some pictures and videos on the Photos/Videos page. Good luck at State on 2/25!

9 CHS students auditioned and were notified that they made the 2017 Indiana All-State Band. This is the highest recognition a high school musician can receive and is a very select group of young people. This is the most All-State students Castle has ever had and is a tribute to their hard work and dedication!! Congratulations to Jordan K, Beth M, Matthew W, Ethan A, Noah M, Conner E, Brian S, Alex W and Caroline R!
