Others advancing to state include: Senior tuba Owen Bjornson, freshman euphonium Tommy Brennan, junior English horn Ian Compton (who placed second in the state), senior bass clarinet Braeden Laird, and junior percussionist Isaac LaVigne. Johnson also had four more band members named as first alternates for positions. They are: Junior alto clarinet Emily Edgar, senior piccolo Grace Gillock, senior Eb clarinet Rika Hagino, and junior tenor saxophone Parker Payne.
