Students perform at concert music festival
Students from area schools participate in a Wisconsin School Music Association-sanctioned Concert Music Festival hosted Thursday at Northwestern High School. During the festival, which is free and open to the public, each school's concert ensemble groups perform before a panel of judges while students from other schools listen in as part of their own learning experience.
The festival draws concert bands and an orchestra from a number of area schools, including Ashland High School, Bayfield High School, Butternut High School, Butternut Middle School, Drummond High School, Drummond Middle School, Northwestern High School, South Shore High School and South Shore Junior High School.
Michael Hintzman, band director at Northwestern High School, serves as the festival manager.
