Holdsworth performs in 2016 UNL Winter Festival for Winds and Percussion
WHS sophomore's instrumental talents continue to pay dividends
Last weekend, WHS sophomore Sydney Holdsworth was a participant in the University of Nebraska at Lincoln’s Winter Festival for Winds and Percussion.
The Winter Festival is a unique concert band and chamber ensemble festival for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. The festival is designed to give participants an outstanding and comprehensive playing experience.
Festival participants are chosen through a recorded audition process. Students attending the festival are involved in three different ensembles: an honor band, a chamber ensemble coached by one of the Glenn Korff School of Music's talented applied wind and percussion faculty, and a large symphonic band that combines the festival honor band with the University Wind Ensemble.
Students also participate in a master class with the applied wind and percussion faculty.
A huge congratulations to Sydney!
