WAU band director Bruce Wilson started the festival in 1998 when the Music Department consisted of 11 students. They now claim 50. Wilson believes it is important to work with young people to develop their talents. “If we don’t use our talent, we will lose them,” he said.
Master classes were held for musicians on Friday. The band broke down into groups by instrument and the professional musicians offered their expertise to the young musicians.
