SEBASTIAN — After being evaluated by a committee of distinguished band directors via a blind audition, the Sebastian River High School (SRHS) Wind Symphony has been selected to perform at the Western International Band Clinic (WIBC) in Seattle, Wash., in November 2016.
In order to raise funds for the trip, the band will be holding a Twilight Dinner Benefit Concert at Captain Hiram’s Sandbar on Tuesday, May 24, featuring the SRHS Jazz Band and Steel Drum Ensemble.
The Western International Band Clinic is a professional development conference for band directors from across the United States. Many guest artists and clinicians come from all over the world to lead clinics and sessions. Concurrently, there are four 160-member WIBC Honor Bands that rehearse and perform during this event. These honor bands are comprised of students from all over the country.
“What a privilege it was to listen to the audition of the Sebastian River High School Band for WIBC 2016. The members of the review committee were lavish in their praise of the recordings you submitted,” says Paul Kassulke, WIBC Guest Band Liaison.
Tickets are $30 per person, which includes entry, a full dinner buffet and entertainment. Visit www.srhsband.com/twilight or call (772) 564-4387 for more information and to purchase tickets.
