• WHS Wind Ensemble Learns From the Best

    The WHS Wind Ensemble already made a name for itself this spring by earning a place at this week’s State Concert Band Festival, but along the way they found some time to get even better.

    Last week, thanks to generous donations from the North Metro Arts Alliance and Metro State University, members of the MSU faculty visited the school for a special rehearsal session in preparation for this week’s competition. The “Boot Camp” was held last Monday with a lot of hands on instruction intended to help good musicians become even better.

    The band received a Superior rating at the Colorado Bandmasters Regional Concert Band Festival earlier this spring to earn the right to compete in state competition this week on the CSU Campus.

    At the State Concert Band Festival, out-of-state judges will evaluate all the performing groups and give them ratings, much like at the Regional Concert Band Festivals. The state event is taking place in Griffin Concert Hall on the Colorado State University Campus.
