Some of the best high school musicians in northeast Wisconsin will descend on Gibraltar’s campus in Fish Creek this Saturday for the Bay Area Music Association Honors Band Concert. Students from Algoma, Denmark, Luxemburg-Casco, Kewaunee, Gibraltar, Sevastopol, Southern Door, and Sturgeon Bay apply to be a part of the nearly 100-person ensemble, which will go through a day of clinics and rehearsals before performing in the afternoon. Gibraltar Band Director Charlie Eckhardt has seven members involved with the BAMA Honors band and says collaborating with other area students and working with a college director like UW-Whitewater’s Dr. Glen Hayes is a great opportunity.
The BAMA Honors Band will conclude their experience with a concert that is free to the public to attend on Saturday at 4 p.m. inside the Door Community Auditorium.
