Seven Templeton Middle School students were nominated and selected to participate in the 50th annual University of Wisconsin (UW)-Milwaukee Middle School Honors Band Festival. The students are eighth-graders Ella Chevalier, Jacob Hubred, Ian Markano, Mia Traverse, Ashley Velasquez; and seventh-graders Sarah Kidd and Conner Simchick. Students were selected from more than 600 nominations statewide.
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. 18-20 in master classes with UW-Milwaukee Department of Music performance faculty and hear performances by UW-Milwaukee ensembles. A final concert will be held in the Zelazo Center for the Performing Arts.
