Pine River-Backus Band Director Nick Bunio took eight Pine River-Backus Elementary School students to a Beginning Band Festival at Horizon Middle School in Moorhead on Saturday, April 27.

Less than half of all students nominated are selected to participate.

Performing PRBE students included fifth-graders Jordan Cunningham, Keenan Dahl and Anna Felthous, and sixth-graders Camilla Blanchard, Gabrialla Heck, Shayna Moore, Jada Oliver and Suzanne Redding.

All students present performed in groups of 80-90 students from all across Minnesota. The festival brought in some of the top band directors from across the state.
