The Wind Ensemble is conducted by Dr. David Bohnert and will perform such titles as Variations on a Korean Folk Song, Pandemonium, A Movement for Rosa and Variations on America. This concert will feature a large variety of band literature and will showcase the many talents of the instrumental music students at WSC.
The Mid-State Band Clinic involves schools in the Mid-State Conference, who select their top musicians to perform in one of two bands on the WSC campus on March 9.
The Department of Music hosts a music festival for junior high school students from 30 schools from the region on March 10. These students perform as part of the band or choir along with instrumental or vocal solos. They are adjudicated by guest clinicians, who also give them a rating.
