Last year Ballard High School’s wind ensemble performed at Carnegie Hall in NYC (video).
Next month they’ll be the first Seattle Public School invited to perform at the Washington Music Educator’s State conference. The WMEA conference is a prestigious event, drawing applications from high schools around the state.
To prepare for the big event — which will be held in Yakima on February 16th — the ensemble is holding a free preview performance in Ballard, and everyone is invited.
The preview concert will be held on Tuesday, February 6, at the Earl Kelly Center for Performing Arts at Ballard High School (1418 NW 65th St). The performance begins at 7:30 p.m.
