Each year, band students from the local district tryout in December to be a part of the All District Band. Henry County Public Schools had over 40 students represented this year in the All District Band. The top students from the district honor bands from across Virginia are selected to audition at James Madison University in February and, from those students, the very best were to perform in Richmond from April 23-25. Four students from Bassett High School and Magna Vista High School qualified for the All Virginia Band this year.

Magna Vista Band members were Dakota Sports and Dylan Royal. Dakota Sports, son of Pete and Heather Sports, was selected as a member of the concert band on trumpet and Dylan Royal, son of Vincent and Donna Royal, was named to the symphonic band on baritone saxophone. Dylan received the highest score on his instrument in the entire state of Virginia. Bassett Band members were Fabiola Vazquez and Evan Joyce. Fabiola Vasquez, daughter of Antonio Cruz Vazquez and Fabiola Becerra, was selected as a member of the concert band on clarinet and Evan Joyce, son of Donald and Tammy Joyce, was selected as a member of the concert band on french horn.
