Wind Ensemble Itineraries April 11 & 13

Wind Ensemble Members & Parents – Here are the two festival itineraries for next week. We are attending our league festival at Liberty High School on Thursday, April 11; at this festival we can automatically qualify for the state band contest if we win outright. If we don’t win outright, but have qualifying scores, we will enter the “tape pool” to be determined whether or not we make it into the state contest. On Saturday, April 13 we will attend the Northwest Regional Concert Band Festival at Mountainview High School in Vancouver, WA. This is a national festival that is operated by Music for All/Bands of America. Some phenomenal Washington Band programs will be performing at this event.
