WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools has announced three students were recently selected to participate in the INpact Indiana’s Future Band. The students selected include Hallie Hertzler, Annalisa Hertzler and Luna Ortiz, all of Lakeview Middle School.
The program is a production of Drum Corps International which allows middle school students from across the state of Indiana to perform as a part of the DCI World Championships Week Festivities. Students will have the opportunity to rehearse under Indiana’s most esteemed music educators and perform in front of thousands at the DCI World Championship Finals.
According to Joseph Peloza, WCS middle school band director, over 600 students applied for this year’s DCI INpact Band. Due to the high level of interest this year, the organization selected a band of 500 students in addition to a color guard to perform at the DCI World Championships on Aug. 9-10, in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium.
“Congratulations to these three students for their selection into the program and opportunity to perform at the DCI World Championships,” said the school corporation in a press release.
