Middle school band, choir to perform in Capitol
The Waupaca Middle School Eighth Grade Band and Choir will perform in the state Capitol Rotunda as part of the Wisconsin Music Educators Association Capitol Concerts program.
The band and choir, directed by Greg Biba and Laurel Leder, will appear from noon to 1 p.m Wednesday, April 17.
Capitol Concerts is a series of student performances coordinated by WMEA in celebration of Music in Our Schools Month.
School music groups from around the state are chosen to participate in the annual WMEA program.
“These concerts bring together two of Wisconsin’s great treasures – the state Capitol and our talented young citizens,” said Kevin Thays, WMEA director of communications. “The concerts share the accomplishments of school music groups and emphasize the very important place of music in our schools and communities.”
