Congratulations 2019 Honor Bands Students!


Congrats to the many Lincoln County Schools band students who recently earned a position in the 2019 South Central District All-District Honor Bands. Over 2000 students from a region encompassing Charlotte and all surrounding counties auditioned for four honor bands. All-District in one of the most competitive band events in our area. These students will participate in the 2019 All-District Clinic on January 25-26 at Stuart W. Cramer HS in Belmont. A concert will be given in the afternoon on the 26th at SWCHS.


A few students scored high enough to become eligible to audition for the North Carolina All-State Honor Bands. That audition is in early March with the All-State clinic in May. We are proud that Lincoln County Schools will be represented well at both All-District and All-State auditions.


Our band programs at our MS and HS would like to thank you the parents and community for their continued support of all LCS bands and the arts programs.
