Oregon Trail Band features six students from Bridgeport, five from Leyton
This year’s 13th Annual Doane University Oregon Trail Band Concert will be held for the public on Monday, January 13, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. at the Alliance High School.
One band will be conducted by Dr. Jay W. Gilbert, Director of Bands at Doane, with several high school student band members from more than a dozen panhandle schools participating. Students were selected based off the nominations and recommendations from their own band directors; player’s skill, overall character and sight-reading abilities were some of the factors determining who would be chosen.
From Bridgeport Public Schools, students chosen to perform are Olivia Freeze, Destinee Mitchell, Janaye Herman, Lucas Smith, Ruthie Loomis-Goltl and Betsy Hansen. From Leyton Schools, Cassidee Murray, Cortney Holt, KJ Bush, Ethan Eckhardt and Hannah Vath will be on stage for the performance.
