Several students from schools in Clemmons and Lewisville were recently recognized as All-District Band members.

Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools will be represented by 144 young musicians in the Northwest District’s All-District Band this year.

The All-District Band consists of two middle school bands and three high school bands.
