WMS 8th Grade Orchestra Selected to Perform
In June of 2021, an audition recording was submitted of the current WMS 8th grade orchestra to the Minnesota Music Education Association (MMEA), in hopes of being selected to perform at the Midwinter Clinic. The MMEA Midwinter Clinic is the largest gathering of music teachers in the state and features nationally-recognized headliners, clinicians, and a wide variety of performances.
In early October, we received exciting news that they were selected to perform at MMEA’s Midwinter Clinic on February 18th. The 8th grade orchestra is 52 members strong and are honored and excited to perform at the Convention Center in Minneapolis on Friday, February 18 at 1:15pm.
They have been practicing a small concert of selections for this special spotlight. They have worked very hard and learned a tremendous amount in the past few months. We are cheering them on as they get ready to perform on the 18th!
