Some of the most talented student musicians in the William S. Hart Union High School District will be in the spotlight during the annual Hart District Honor Band Concert at 7 p.m. Saturday at Hart Auditorium.

Each honor band is composed of about 85 students chosen by audition from the top student musicians at each local junior high and high school.

Chosen musicians received their music earlier this month and came together for the first time for rehearsals at the end of February.

During Saturday's concert, they will be under the direction of professional guest conductors: Gary Gilroy from California State University Fresno and Dan Bochard, a professional trombonist.

The two directors selected challenging music for the concert, which will stretch the musical abilities of the students and please the audience.

Past directors have been amazed at the ability of students who come through Hart District programs, according to Randy Gilpin, concert organizer and band director at Rancho Pico Junior High School.

The concert begins at 7 p.m. with the junior high school band, followed by the high school ensemble. Tickets are $10, either in advance from band directors at Hart District schools or at the door.
