Local students participate in Honors Music Project
For Antigo Times
Many of Wisconsin’s most accomplished junior high and middle school music students (band, choir and orchestra) performed in Madison on Saturday, Oct. 31, at the Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA) Middle Level State Honors Music Project concerts. Representing Antigo was Simone Lanik.
Throughout the state, 314 students in grades six, seven and eight were selected from over 1,200 who auditioned in April 2015 to participate in the WSMA program. Auditions included individual student performances and an ensemble class, taught by an Honors adjudicator. Selection was based on several elements of music performance.
WSMA State Honors Music Project brings Wisconsin’s finest school musicians together to work with nationally known conductors in a professional setting.
