Fort Loramie band heads to state


Fort Loramie High School band members are clapped out of school Friday, April 21. The clap-out was to honor the band, which was headed to Findlay to compete in the North West State Band Competition, Friday night. The band will play three songs in front of three judges at the competition; then they will sight-read one more song in front of a fourth judge. This is the first time since 1994 that the Fort Loramie band has made it to state-level competition. Usually, it’s the band who plays during a clap-out. Because the band couldn’t play for themselves, a band of students playing kazoos and the Fort Loramie Alumni Band performed as they followed the band students around the school.
