Meet one of our amazing O’Neill students! Eighth-grader Keriann Clark recently earned a scholarship from the American Wind Band (AWB) following a demanding two-step audition process that included a recording and a live audition. She will perform her clarinet solo this month at the AWB concert and will also earn a scholarship for private lessons or a music camp. “Keri has really emerged as a leader in the O'Neill band and jazz band because of her commitment to challenging herself and expanding her musical skills, as well as the support, encouragement, and friendship she offers her fellow musicians,” said O’Neill Band Director Christine Kaminski. “ I am so proud of her achievement, and so happy to see her being recognized in this way.”
