Kimball Band

Kimball Area Public High School had 30 members of its Varsity & College Band attend the Section Solo and Ensemble competition on Feb. 27 at Eden Valley-Watkins. These members competed in 16 different events. Of these events, there were eight Superior ratings and four Excellent ratings. Congratulations to the Kimball students who participated in the event!

“All of our students performed very well,” said Kimball’s 4-th year band director, Justin Frerich. “I am very proud of them for performing because it is not an easy thing to do. I hope that the Kimball area community members will be able to hear a few of them perform at our upcoming concert on March 20th!”
