On November 7, 2021, the Southwestern Oklahoma Band Directors Association held auditions for the annual S.W.O.B.D.A. All-Region Honor Band in Altus, Oklahoma. Approximately 1,400 students, grades 7-12, from 57 schools in 17 Southwest Oklahoma counties participated. Membership into the honor band is based upon the outcome of student auditions.
The Apache Band Program is proud to announce that Mia Komardley was selected to this year’s honor band. Mia was one of only six students to be selected on Euphonium. Also, with this selection/accomplishment, Mia will be presented a “THREE YEAR METAL” at the concert in February for making the honor band three consecutive years.
This marks the 6th Consecutive year the Apache Band Program has had musicians selected to this honor band. Concerts for the S.W.O.B.D.A. All-Region Honor Band will be held at the Weatherford Public Schools Performing Arts Center in Weatherford, OK, on February 5, 2022, and are free to the public.
Congratulations to this outstanding musician for being selected as a member of the 2022 S.W.O.B.D.A. All-Region Honor Band.
