Band Workshop 2015

The annual Senior High Band Workshop took place on Monday, January 26, 2015. This is the second year that the students and clinicians enjoyed the beautiful surrounding at the University Women’s Club down the street from Westgate. The students broke into instrumental sectionals, working with a professional player on each individual instrument, and filled all the rooms of the historic Ralph Conner House with great sounds! They filled the halls with music from 9:00 in the morning to 8:00 at night and came to school the next day with chapped lips, sore arms and solid preparation for our upcoming Optimist Festival performance.

Thank you to the University Women’s Club, the clinicians, to Ross Brownlee and all the students!
