Parker Tillery, son of Michael and Amanda Tillery, lead trumpeter for the Bright Star Christian School Band was awarded a position in the Four States Honor Concert Band. The performance was held on January 14th, 2017 at the Performance Arts Center in Texarkana, TX.
Over 200 students from Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Oklahoma formed 2 concert bands, and one jazz band. Rehearsals were held for 3 days prior to the event.
Parker says, “This had been an experience I will never forget. I hope to place in the Four States next year.” Students can try-out for the Honor Band during their sophomore, junior and senior years.
Bright Star Christian School band director Richard Shanks said, “Parker is an inspiration to the future B.S.C.S band members to work towards in the years to come.”
