Andrew Lindgren, a junior at Woonsocket High School, and Dayton Easton, a sophomore at Sanborn Central High School, were selected to participate in the 62nd Annual Augustana Band Festival.

To be selected, Lindgren and Easton had to submit an application to the festival selection committee. Once chosen, they received the selected music a couple weeks before the event to practice on their own. Then, they reported to the Augustana University campus with their band director, Janae West, on Friday, Nov. 8. There, they met and practiced for two days with the other student musicians from across South Dakota selected to participate in the festival and perform in the Grand Finale Concert held on Saturday, Nov. 9 at the Mary W. Sommervold Hall in the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls.
