The event was an opportunity for orchestra director Damon Conn to highlight the year-long achievements of the students in grades 7 through 12 and for parents and friends to join in the celebration. The students also thanked Conn for his dedication, presenting him with a framed word plaque of some of his favorite sayings, and a special conductor's baton.
The awards banquet accents the orchestras' successful school year, including:
