Rock Hill High School Band, called the Band of Distinction, played a big role in hosting a regional Carolina Winter Ensemble Association competition. More than 80 school ensembles participated in this all day Saturday event. The Rock Hill Band Boosters recruited over 70 volunteers to help set up and run the Saturday CWEA event. Band Director Ben Hingle said the CWEA indoor competition keeps their marching band color guard, percussion, and wind ensemble units engaged and competing during the winter months.
