Winter Festival to feature high school musicians

School of Music performances this week

The Winter Festival for Winds and Percussion, a unique concert band and chamber ensemble festival for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors, is Jan. 20 through Jan. 22 at the Kimball Recital Hall.

The Honor Band, the University Wind Ensemble and the Festival Symphonic Band will perform at the Winter Festival Finale Concert at 3 p.m. Jan. 22. The finale concert is free and open to the public.

The festival is designed to give participants an outstanding and comprehensive playing experience. Festival participants are chosen through a recorded audition process. Students attending the festival are involved in three different ensembles: an honor band; a chamber ensemble coached by one of the Glenn Korff School of Music’s talented applied wind and percussion faculty; and a large symphonic band that combines the festival honor band with the University Wind Ensemble. Students also participate in a master class with the applied wind and percussion faculty.
