Sheboygan Area School District Music Students Advance to State
On Saturday, March 15 music students from Manitowoc and Sheboygan performed for solo and ensemble festival at South High School. Over 450 entries were performed for judges throughout the day. The festival, which is sponsored in part by the Wisconsin School Music Association (WSMA), provides judges from all over the state to listen to individual and group performances and evaluate their playing according to state performance standards.
