May 3, 2016The Varsity Band performed in the Chicagoland Invitational Concert Band Festival hosted by John Hersey High School on April 16. The Varsity Band was invited through an application process and performed for three judges of distinction in the collegiate and high school ranks. Pieces performed were San Antonio Dances by Frank Tichelli and Italian in Algiers by Gioachino Rossini. The band played wonderfully and represented WHS at a high level! The Varsity Band played so well that all three judges said that WHS Bands were "put on the map" in the concert band world as a band to watch out for in the future! This is a great step toward growing our program and elevating the level of performance in the band.
