WSMA SOLO & ENSEMBLE
2023 Festival — March 11 at Menomonee Fall High School
Germantown High School Band and Choir musicians along with students from other local high schools gather and perform as soloists and in ensembles for the Wisconsin School Music Association festival. Thousands of high school musicians participate throughout Wisconsin.
Students who receive a “starred-first” rating at District quality for the State Solo & Ensemble Festival held the first Saturday in May. Germantown students compete at Cardinal Stritch University where they attempt to earn an “exemplary status.”
Every other year the Germantown Bands take a musical performance trip alternating between domestic and international locations. Past domestic trips have been Boston, Orlando, and Washington D.C.; past international to Rome and London. All band students are eligible to participate in these trips. There are multiple fundraising opportunities available to help subsidize the cost of these trips.
FEAST & FOLLIES
April 22, 2023, at Sterling Chalet in Richfield
Doors open at 4:30pm
Dinner served at 6:00pm
The annual Feast & Follies event presented by the Germantown Warhawk Band Boosters is our biggest fundraiser of the year! The event is a wonderfully catered dinner followed by a first-class variety show performed by the members of the Germantown High School’s band program. The evening also includes live and silent auctions as well as raffles to help benefit band students and music education in Germantown.
Marching Band Madness is an “invitational” event that features area high school marching bands performing their field shows. In addition to each band performing separately, all participating bands join forces in a grand finale that features over 600 musicians on the field! The event has unique educational components for band students by providing them an opportunity to watch other bands and hear directly from the judges at the conclusion of their performance.
FEAST & FOLLIES
Feast & Follies is the result of months of planning and preparation by multiple Band Booster volunteers. It's a time for boosters to relax, socialize, and savor a delightful meal as our student musicians provide entertainment.
A variety of items donated by local businesses, private individuals, and families are up for bid. The proceeds from this annual event will allow the Band Boosters to continue to support the Germantown band program. As such, we encourage you to bid early, bid high, and bid often the evening of the event!
