This event is sponsored by Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, every other year. It comprises 2 days of intense work under the direction of guest, college level conductors with 2 choice bands on upper level music. At the end of the 2 days a festive performance of all the pieces is presented for parents and friends in the PLU concert hall and is made available on CD. Students are recommended by High School Music Teachers for the honor of participating in this experience and it is a great learning experience for upper level band members. In 2013 we had ? students participate in this excellent opportunity.
