A tuba player from Marion County R-II has been named to the Northeast All-District Band.  

Colby Schulz, a senior at MCR-II, earned the honor Nov. 9 at competitive auditions in Moberly. 

Students from the 73 schools in the district are eligible to audition, from which six tuba players are selected for the top band.  

The band will rehearse Saturday, Jan. 11, in preparation for a concert that evening.  

Schulz is the son of Mike and Rachel Bemis, and Troy Schulz, all of Philadelphia.
