This will be the 20th anniversary of this event which brings high school students from throughout Utah for two days. Some years as many as 100 students descend on campus for this two day festival. Students will arrive on Friday, December 10, for auditions and will begin rehearsals that evening. Rehearsal will continue on Saturday, December 11, beginning at 8AM and continuing until 3PM. The band members will have a one hour break at noon that Saturday when they will enjoy pizza together in Shepherd Union to the accompaniment of the WSU Flute Choir and Brass Quintet playing music for the season.

This annual program offers young musicians an opportunity to develop their talents, to have a good time with musicians from other schools and to make contacts with Weber State University faculty and students. The bonus is the concert that gives parents and other audience members an opportunity to see the musical stars and educators of the future.
