Washburn High School band students participated in the District Solo & Ensemble Festival hosted by Ashland High School on Saturday, April 7.
Jaryd Traaholt (xylophone solo), MaryBeth Barker and Laurel Shanks (saxophone duet), the Woodwind Ensemble, the Jazz Combo and the Jazz Ensemble all qualified to perform at the State Solo & Ensemble Festival at UW-Eau Claire on May 5.
This is a wonderful and very challenging activity for young musicians to be involved in. Congratulations to all students who participated in this excellent educational opportunity.
The instrumental music program in Washburn is directed by Rick Seppa.
