Congratulations to Highland 8th grader Nick Ruddle '22 who was recently selected for the All-District Band. Nick will be the first student to represent Highland in the district, which covers six counties and the City of Winchester.
Nick earned third chair out of 14 trumpet players selected for the band. He's been playing for two and a half years and studies with Mr. David Detwiler, principle trumpet for the National Symphony Orchestra and retired U.S. Army Band trumpeter.
"Nick performs with the Highland Brass Quartet and will be playing with the pit orchestra in this year's upcoming production of Sweeney Todd," said Mike Hughes, Highland's Artistic Director. "He is an outstanding trumpet player, playing at a level far beyond his years."
The All-District Band concert will be held on Saturday, February 3 at 3:00m p.m. at Millwood High School in Winchester. WAY TO GO, NICK!
