     Twelve Cactus Canyon musicians performed in the Pinal County Honor Band Jan. 26 in Coolidge. The annual event brings students from all over the county together to play and encourage the community to celebrate band.
     The group played three songs at Central Arizona College in Coolidge. Musicians from 12 other schools were brought together in this opportunity for students all over Pinal County to meet and play.
     The honor band had a long day of rehearsals and listening to recording of the songs before the performance.
     Before the event music director Aimee Vining made a list of 12 of her best performers and sent the list to the director at CAC, who then chose seven CCJH musicians based on which instruments were needed. Representing Cactus Canyon were: Kendra Litt, Mackezie Dillon, Alexa DeLorenzo, Faith Marie Inzunza, Laura Morning, Shawn Gilbert, and Cameron Hermann.
     “There was no audition,” Ms. Vining said. ”I just chose my top twelve players, which was really hard because they are all so talented.”
