Bear Creek, NC - Alyssa Mathewson, a French Horn player in the Chatham Central High School band, has been selected to participate in the Central District Honors Band in Raleigh. Mathewson earned this distinction by auditioning on Saturday, January 9, at Orange High School in Hillsborough.

Over 800 students from North Carolina counties like Wake, Chatham, Johnston, Durham, and Guilford competed for placement in the Honors Bands by performing scales, a prepared solo, and selected sightreading on their instrument. Mathewson was the only student from Chatham County selected for the Honors Band this year.

“I am so proud of her achievement. Alyssa truly applies herself in every area of high school, and is an especially gifted musician. She will represent Chatham County and Chatham Central extremely well,” said Bruce Smith, Chatham Central band director.

The Central District Honors Band weekend will be held at Sanderson High School in Raleigh on Friday, February 5, and Saturday, February 6. The weekend will conclude with a concert presenting all of the music the musicians develop in rehearsals with their clinicians throughout the weekend. The concert will be Saturday evening, February 6, at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium at Sanderson High School. It is free and open to the public.
