The two hour concert displayed the talents of the music students at Waukesha West as they performed classic and skilled compositions like Boplicity, Blue Ronda A La Turk, The Great Steamboat Race, El Relicario, Amparito Roca and Arabesque! Of course this isn’t possible without the dedication and work of the students, Mrs. Granzow, Mr. Farmer, Waukesha West High School, parents, and the Waukesha West Band Board. We hope you enjoyed the evening!
