The WHS band and choir are tuning up for their 2019 Winter Concert tonight, featuring holiday classics and some melodious newcomers. The band will perform a french carol called “Echoes de Noel,” “Cartoon Christmas” and “I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas.” The band will also play “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” trombone player senior Luke Stuhlsatz’s favorite song of the set. "It's the most upbeat song we're doing," Stuhlsatz said.
Senior Luke Stuhlsatz and junior Bernice Poulter had the opportunity to play in the K-State All Star Marching Band at the first K-State home game August 31. “To get into the band we had to be nominated by Mr. Philbrook and fill out some forms,” Poulter said. “Then we had to be chosen by the directors of the band. We were sent the music after we were accepted into the band. We had to learn it before hand and mark it with our movements in the marches.”
