After selecting their instrument of choice, putting in hours of practice and perfecting their audition, a handful of Papillion La Vista Community Schools middle school students were selected to perform for the 8th Grade All-State Ensembles which includes 82 students for concert band and 18 for the jazz band. The jazz band selection is new for 2017.
Here are the students selected from Papillion La Vista Community Schools.

To be selected for the 8th Grade All-State Ensemble, students recorded an audio audition to be judged against all students playing that same instrument across the entire state of Nebraska. In all, Stacy Bean, an organizer for the state’s event for top 8th grade performers said that 491 auditions were collected from 71 schools in Nebraska.
The 2018 NSBA 8th Grade All-State Band performances will take place on Saturday January 13th, at Kearny High School Performing Arts Center at 4:00 p.m.
