Priorities for the fundraiser funds: new Peter & the Wolf wolf and cat costumes, subsidize tickets for orchestra students to go to the Symphony, pay for clinicians to come to WC and give classes to our orchestra students, buy stickers & tshirts to give to 5th grade Strings students and middle school orchestra students to increase interest in joining the WC Orchestra, any travel expenses
Both the Varsity Orchestra and the Non-Varsity Orchestra earned Sweepstakes in UIL competitions. Congratulations!
