Brandon Darr is a Poth High School senior who has enjoyed his years in the school band. He has many accomplishments in the band program, including solos in the marching shows. One of his accomplishments this year has made history at Poth.

He competed at ATSSB and made the state band. Now he is preparing for the next steps to winning. “I have a placement tryout on February 12. I also have two full days of practice on the 13th and 14th. The 15th is a concert at 9:30 in the morning,” Brandon said.

He has prepared himself for the level of competition that will be there. “It shall be intense. The music is different and there are many gifted players,” he said.

According to Darr, there is only one thing he can do right now, “Practice, practice, and more practice.”

He is pretty excited about this accomplishment but doesn’t consider himself a school history-maker, “Well, I’m not the first,” said Brandon, “I’m actually the first in 40 years.”

Brandon practices five to seven hours a week. Music means a lot to him. “It is a form of expression; it is a combination of every human emotion. I truly enjoy music,” he said.

He couldn’t have been any happier about making the state band, stating, “It’s a nice feeling, but the year isn’t over yet.”

With that being said, it looks like Brandon has many more accomplishments he would like to achieve.

Poth High School junior Erin Chacon hopes to attend culinary school after graduation. She is the daughter of Melinda and Ricky Jalufka.
