Percussionist Justin Horton was chosen by band director Sean Whelan as Performer of the Week for encouraging and helping others do their best.
“Justin has been a great leader in the percussion section,” said Whelan. “He knows his music and always helps others. He is a great musician and an even better person.”
Horton has been playing since sixth grade and hopes to continue into his senior year.
“I play snare drum, bass drum, quads, xylophone, marimba, vibraphone, triangle basically everything… my favorite is probably quads just because there is a lot of improvisation and I like that,” said Horton.
