Rangely High School was represented by four students at the Best of the West Music Festival at Colorado Mesa University on Dec. 7-8. Philip Noyes, percussion; Mary Scoggins, trumpet; Ammie Vaughn, alto saxophone; and Aliyah Jackson, clarinet, participated in the event. High school band directors nominate students who will represent their school well, benefit from the experience, and positively contribute to the festival. The students audition and are placed in a band under the direction of a guest conductor. More than 280 students from high schools all over western Colorado joined in this exciting festival which culminated in a performance featuring three bands made up of the students and the CMU Wind Symphony.
