Hanford High School Wind Ensemble Selected For Regional Performance

Hanford High School’s Wind Ensemble students, who play everything from trumpets and trombones to oboes and saxophones, will perform for a regional convention of music educators in Portland in February 2019.

Music teacher and ensemble director Russ Newbury says Hanford’s selection to perform is historic for the school’s music program.

“The students are going to perform magnificently,” Mr. Newbury says. “It really is an honor to be selected to perform in front of so many people dedicated to making music a part of our world.”
