Lake Country Now: The Oconomowoc High School Wind Symphony is one of just 18 high school groups from across the United States that have been selected to perform at the 2016 Music for All National Concert Festival next week in Indianapolis.
Headed by OHS Band Director Michael Krofta. the symphony will perform at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, March 11, at Clowes Concert Hall on the Butler University Campus. Josh Barker, student teacher from Carroll University, will join the group. The festival runs from Thursday, March 10, through Saturday, March 12.
The festival is the biggest gathering of high school bands. It is considered to be a great honor to be selected. With the launch of the festival in 1992, it has attempted to offer powerful experiences for young musicians.
“This is really huge for us, as we will be representing our school district, high school, music program, community and the state of Wisconsin,” Krofta said.
