Westwood Students Shine at BPA Regionals!
WHS Band Students Participate in Honors Band!
The following students were selected for the 2022 WSMA Menominee River Conference Honors Band on January 14th and 15th at Niagara High School in Niagara, WI. Each student was nominated and selected for participation in this year's honors band because of their outstanding musicianship and leadership within the Westwood High School Band.
The Menominee River Conference Honors Band is comprised of more than 80 students selected from many Upper Peninsula and Northeast Wisconsin schools. Students are nominated by their member school and selected by a committee of conference directors. These students spent two long days rehearsing and improving their musicianship with award-winning and internationally acclaimed band composer and music educator Mr. Michael Sweeney from Milwaukee, WI. The Menominee River Conference Honors Band weekend culminated with a tremendous performance by the Honors Band on Saturday, January 15th in the Niagara High School auditorium.
We congratulate these students for this terrific achievement!
