Five members of the Columbia High School Band
program were recently selected as members of the 2016-2017 North Jersey Area
Honor Bands. Gillian Basedow, a senior
French horn player, Louise Kern-Kensler, a sophomore trombone player, and Peter
Henderson, a senior percussionist, were all selected as members of the Area
Symphonic Band, with Louise and Peter earning principal positions in their
respective sections. Liana Greenberg, a
junior contra-alto clarinet player, and Adam Friedman-Brown, a junior French
horn player, were selected as members of the Area Wind Ensemble, with Adam
earning the position of principal player for his section. Moreover, Adam earned the highest score of
all students auditioning on French horn, putting him first among the twenty-two
other students auditioning. “We are all
very proud of these students and their wonderful accomplishment,” said Peter
Bauer, Director of Bands at Columbia.
“They have worked hard and accomplished so much, and will represent our
school and band program with distinction and pride.” The North Jersey Area Band concert will be
