KAUKAUNA — Three River View Middle School Eighth grade band students — Taylor Nowak, Peter Lison and Emma Momberg — have been selected from more than 600 middle school students across the state as members of the UW-Milwaukee Middle School Honors Band Festival.
They will perform on campus at UW Milwaukee on Nov. 20 with a full concert band, according to a post on the school’s Facebook page.
The UW-Milwuakee Middle School Honor Band Festival is one of the longest standing events of its kind, and this year marks the 50th year of honor band activities at UWM.
The festival provides the region’s most motivated and accomplished middle school instrumentalists an opportunity to work with each other and with nationally recognized wind band conductors.
In addition, students participate in master classes with the UWM Department of Music’s performance faculty, and they hear performances by UWM ensembles.
