Ohio's Oldest High School Football Band - Since 1914

Tiger Swing Band

Because of their Superior ratings at the recent District Contest, the WHS Symphonic Band and the WHS Wind Orchestra will both have the opportunity to compete in the State Large Group Contest!

The state contest will be held on Friday, May 2 at GlenOak High School.  The contest is free and open to the public. The Wind Orchestra is scheduled to perform at 5:05pm, and the Symphonic Band at 9:40pm.  Please note that no cameras or recording devices, video or audio, are allowed at any contest site.

The State Large Group Contest is sponsored by the Ohio Music Education Association.  From the OMEA website:

For music to be indispensable to learning and life, it must be more than a shallow, passing experience for the student. Increased proficiency increases enjoyment, and competence begets respect for competence. Quality is not a limiting factor for the individual, but puts within his or her grasp an otherwise inaccessible treasure store of the world’s cultural riches.

We wish the best of luck to those students who are participating in the State Contest!!
