Wa-Hi band members named to state honor band
Congratulations to Walla Walla High School senior band members Suzanne Nicault and Aaron Christopherson for being selected for the 2021 Western International Band Clinic. WIBC is an honor band festival of four bands of about 150 members each. The event takes place each year the weekend before Thanksgiving at the Sea-Tac Double Tree Inn.
“It is similar to an All-State experience except it is just for bands,” said Band Director Andrew Ueckert. “After a year off because of COVID, it’s great to see this awesome festival back granted with many special protocols due to COVID.”
Suzanne and Aaron submitted an mp3 audition.
“They did a great job on their auditions and both made it in to the top band,” said Ueckert.
