WINTER INVITATIONAL

Dear WB parents and students

I write this morning with a heart full of gratitude. Yesterday’s show went about as smoothly and perfectly as an event of that size and scope could have! I heard nothing but positive feedback from MCGC, the judges and group directors and parents! A few parents stopped me in the halls to tell me how much they love coming to WB and that they have a great time every year. I drove 3 judges to the airport who commented on our show being one of their favorites, and they go to a LOT of shows in many other states and in many other circuits!

This wonderful feedback is a testament to our AMAZING parents, students, friends, alumni and supporters who take the time to volunteer at our shows. I wish there was enough space and time to thank each and every one of you individually, for making all of our guests feel welcome in our venue. We also owe a debt of gratitude to the teachers, administrators and custodial staff who kindly lent us their spaces and worked closely with us to prepare WBHS for this event.

The season is just beginning, and I am so excited for our all of our talented winter ensembles…

GO WB!!!
