Millers Attend WSC Honor Band

“The sounds of hundreds of instruments playing at a time. It may be overwhelming but totally worth the experience. This year Heidi Miller and Brent Miller went to Wayne State College, in Nebraska, for the 2014 WSC Honor Band.

The day consists of full day rehearsals with short breaks in between. Each band rehearses separately, then at the end of the day they had a full blown late afternoon concert. They say it was very fun and exiting and for sure Brent wants to go again next year.

We thank Wayne State College for holding the event. Hope to see you there next year for another exiting day at Wayne State College.”
