WJH SYMPHONIC BAND

April Update

In Case You Missed It

Last month, the Symphonic 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 Symphonic Band performed and behaved extremely well on this trip. We have now qualified for State Festival on April 21st. We are extremely proud of our Symphonic Band. We are really looking forward to State!
