Butte County, Calif.--Big news for some local musicians; the Las Plumas-Oroville Alliance Band out of Las Plumas and Oroville High Schools has just returned from Seattle, Washington.

They performed at the Heritage Music Festival alongside musicians from Canada, Montana, all across the continent.

The band got first place in their division and top overall band.

Out of 640 musicians, 2 of the local students, Sheldon Wollam and Jeremiah Macomber were selected as maestro award winners.
