Three Mount Mercy University students were selected as members of the 2012 Iowa Collegiate Honor Band at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. This marks the second year Mount Mercy has participated in the honor band, which consists of players from 15 other Iowa colleges and universities.
“This was a great opportunity for our students to play a collegiate program under great guest conductors and meet and mingle with band students from across the state,” said Mount Mercy Coordinator for Campus Music Gerald Kreitzer.
Two students from every college are automatically selected to the Iowa Collegiate Honor Band. This year three Mount Mercy students were chosen as members in the honor band: senior Stephanie Nibaur of Elma, Iowa; junior Jen Noe of Marion, Iowa; and freshman Paige Wenger of Elkader, Iowa.
