The Central Oklahoma Band Director’s Association (CODA) held its annual clinic and performance the weekend of Jan. 10 and 11 at the University of Oklahoma Catlett Music Center.

Freshman Ryan McLaughlin auditioned for CODA in Nov. 2018.

He, along with around 90 freshmen from across the state, made up the band.

McLaughlin is the first CODA participant from HCP since 2015. He earned the third chair playing his bassoon.

“It was fun to play with other people that are really good at playing their instruments,” McLaughlin said.

The clinician of the band was Chris Harris of Owasso Public Schools.

The band performed “The Footlifter” by Henry Fillmore, “Schottische” by Robert Russell Bennett, “Lullaby to the Moon” by Brian Balmages and “Foundry” by John Mackey.

Band Director Kelli Taylor complimented McLaughlin for his playing ability.

“He is a fantastic bassoon player. Ryan has a competitive spirit and I would put him up against any bassoonist in the area. I look forward to what he does in the future and the opportunities he will have,” Taylor said.
