Trenton High School freshman Ellis Gilham has been named as a first alternate to the 2014 Missouri All-State Band.
Gilham was selected during auditions judged this past weekend. In-person auditions were postponed twice during the weather, so students recorded their audition, which were then judged and selections made. Gilham is the first alternate baritone and will play in the band should one of the first four baritones be unable to participate. The band will perform during the Missouri Music Educators Association conference at Lake Ozark later this month. He is the son of Tim and Davina Gilham.
