Ryder, Seefeldt perform with top musicians
Two Waupaca High School students were among those in this year’s National Band Association All-State Band.
The students are Jane Ryder and Bailey Seefeldt, who are in the WHS Wind Ensemble.
Mark Kryshak is their band director.
The students chosen to be in this year’s All-State Band rehearsed on Jan. 20 and 21, at Appleton North High School.
They did so in preparation for their Jan. 21 concert there.
The All-State Band concert concluded the state convention of the Wisconsin Chapter of the National Band Association.
Membership in the band placed these student musicians in the top percentile among all student musicians in the state.
Jack Stamp conducted this year’s All-State Band.
A composer and conductor, he is currently an adjunct professor of music education at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls.
