WJH CONCERT BAND

April Update

In Case You Missed It

Last month, the Concert Band performed at District Festival in Zachary, and received a sweepstakes trophy. In order to receive this trophy, the band has to receive the highest possible score from each of the four judges. The Concert Band performed and behaved extremely well on this trip. This is the first year that the Westside Concert Band has ever gone to this festival, and they received the highest possible score! We are extremely proud of our Concert Band!
