Band Bulletin #24: 2/24-3/2 – MID-WINTER CONCERT

This past Saturday, Wind Ensemble had their first ever Conservatory Day to prepare for the OMEA Large Group Adjudicated Event. This event gave students the opportunity for more in-depth, focused study on their instrument and our 3 musical selections. Thank you to our Band Boosters for providing this opportunity and to the university faculty/professional musicians that served as our guest clinicians. We are looking forward to sharing our hard work with you at Tuesday’s concert!
