Two WHS seniors selected for 2017 UNL Trumpet Day
Redding & Pace to join Cornhusker Marching Band for Sept. 16 halftime performance
Wahoo High School is blessed with a very talented Warrior Band, and their halftime performances are a highlight at numerous Warrior athletic competitions.
On Sept. 16, some of that talent will be on display at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln.
The University of Nebraska at Lincoln Marching Band and the Glenn Korff School of Music will host the 2017 Trumpet Day on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 15-16. This annual event features 50 students from around the state, who audition for a spot in the program.
This year, two of those 50 students hail from Wahoo High School!
Congratulations to WHS seniors Isaac Redding and Katie Pace, who have both been selected to attend this year's UNL Trumpet Day!
The highlight of this event will be the opportunity to join the Cornhusker Marching Band in its halftime performance for the Nebraska vs. Northern Illinois football game on Sept. 16. Redding and Pace will perform along with WHS alumni Shawn Knowlton (Class of 2017) and Cole Talbert (Class of 2016), who are currently members of the band.
Leading up to the halftime performance, students will participate in a masterclass, and spend time rehearsing with the Cornhusker Marching Band in preparation for the big show.
Congratulations Isaac and Katie on this accomplishment!
