The 2013 Tri-State High School Honor Band Festival was held Thursday, October 17. The guest conductor was Ed Kiefer, renown composer and clinician from North Carolina. Tri-State student participants were nominated and chosen from thirty five regional high schools to participate in a day of music making on the University of Wisconsin-Superior campus. There was two honor bands made up of approximately 90 students each that will be rehearsing and attending master classes for their instruments presented by our UWS music faculty. The final event is an evening concert that includes a performance of the UWS Full Brass Jackets, UWS Symphonic Band, The Tri-State Black Band and the Tri-State Gold Band. UWS flute instructor Melanie Sever will be performing a solo with the UWS Symphonic Band on the evening concert as well.
