Ten Templeton Middle School students were nominated and selected to participate in the 51st annual University of Wisconsin (UW)-Milwaukee Middle School Honors Band Festival.
The students are eighth-graders Elizabeth Fischer, Sarah Kidd, Aayush Iyengar, Spencer Margolis, Emily Nielsen, Kayla Olson, Nicholas Peterson, Kate Powell, Conner Simchick, and Connor Tohulka. They will be 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 will participate Nov. 17-19 in master classes with UW-Milwaukee Department of Music performance faculty and hear performances by UW-Milwaukee ensembles. A final concert will be held Nov. 19 in the Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts.
