BUTTE COUNTY, Calif. - Local musicians from the Las Plumas-Oroville Alliance Band performed at the Seattle Heritage Music Festival alongside musicians from across the continent.
The band earned first place in their division and top overall band.
Students Sheldon Wollam and Jeremiah Macomber were selected as Maestro Award Winners out of 640 musicians.
"Going forward it shows that everything we've been working on, and all of the hard work that the kids have put in year after year is really paying off," said Band Director Michael Walker.
Next year, they plan to perform in San Francisco and if all goes well their sights are set on Carnegie Hall the year after that.
