Perry Symphonic Winds to perform at the 2019 OMEA State Conference

Congratulations to the members of the 2018-2019 Perry Symphonic Winds for being selected to perform at the 2019 OMEA State Conference.  This event is attended by nearly every music educator in the state, college music professors, and professional musicians.  In order to be considered, groups must audition by submitting a recording.

This year, 120 collegiate, professional, and high school groups applied to perform.  The Perry Symphonic Winds were one of only a handful of groups to be selected.

This year, the conference will be held January 31st-February 2nd at the Cleveland Convention Center.  The performance will be open to parents and family, and you are all encouraged to attend.  We should know the performance date sometime this Fall.

This is not just an honor for the Symphonic Winds, but for ALL members of our program!

A special thank you to the senior class of 2018 for helping us achieve this accomplishment.
