Seven Templeton Middle School students were nominated and selected to participate in the 52nd annual University of Wisconsin (UW)-Milwaukee Middle School Honors Band Festival.
The students are eighth-graders Colleen Flynn, Will Hartman, Ava Schweikart, Hiranmayi Swaminathan, and Brock Volden and seventh-graders Margaret Kidd and Marisa Lehner. They were among 300 Wisconsin students selected to participate.
The festival provides the region’s most motivated and accomplished middle school instrumentalists an opportunity to work together and with nationally-known conductors.
Students participated Nov. 16-18 in master classes with UW-Milwaukee Department of Music performance faculty and heard performances by UW-Milwaukee ensembles. A final concert was held Nov. 18 in the Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts.
