Nearly 200 students from across the parish were selected for the 2017-2018 Livingston Parish junior high and high school honor bands.

The high school honor band, which students auditioned for Nov. 16, is made up of 82 students from four area high schools: Denham Springs High School (39), Walker High School (36), Live Oak High School (five) and Albany High School (two).

Both honor bands will perform a concert together on the Saturday after Martin Luther King Day (Jan. 20). The junior high band will play first, followed by the high school band.
