High School Select Wind Orchestra

January 29, 2016 to January 31, 2016


The 13th Annual University of Saskatchewan High School Select Wind Orchestra (USHSSWO) will take place January 29 – 31, 2016 in Quance Theatre (Education Building) at the University of Saskatchewan, directed by Dr. Darrin Oehlerking and Dr. Glen Gillis.

The intent of this event is to provide talented high school students another opportunity to learn and perform new repertoire with a selected few from around the Province, and have fun in the process. As well, it is to support instrumental music and provide more interaction between the Secondary Schools and the University of Saskatchewan.

High school band directors are welcome to nominate students from their program to attend the USHSSWO weekend event. The nomination deadline is Monday, October 19th, and the negotiation meeting will take place on Friday, October 23 at 4:00 pm at the U of S Faculty Club. All directors nominating students are welcome to participate in the meeting (complementary refreshments and snacks will be provided).
