WASHBURN COUNTY -- The Shell Lake Arts Center hosted its 20th Annual Middle School Honors Band on Thursday, November 1st, 2018.
The Center received over 320 nominations from 36 different Wisconsin and Minnesota schools this year. Of those nominations, 222 musically talented students were selected to perform in one of the three bands: Red, White & Blue.
Students spent the day practicing within their assigned bands, working to master the complicated techniques required to perform these beautiful pieces, and culminated the day with a public concert in the Darrell Aderman Auditorium.
