30th Annual Middle School
Honor Band and Orchestra
Each year, the most capable performers in each middle school are chosen to be part of the All-Glendale Middle School Honors Band or Orchestra. Students are selected from both groups to combine and for a Symphonic Orchestra, directed by a guest conductor. With only four rehearsals for each group, these outstanding musicians put on a concert for family members and friends. Below are some pictures that were taken on Saturday April 8, 2017 at the John Wayne Performing Arts Center.

Wilson Middle School was invited to Disneyland's own 2017 Judges' Invitational Festival. This competition is invitational-only, for schools who have achieved a "Superior" also known as a "Gold Ranking" previously. On April 28, 2017, three of Wilson's Advanced Ensembles performed at Fullerton College and Plummer Auditorium. Wind Ensemble received a third place in the Middle School Concert Band/Wind Ensemble Division. Our Symphonic Orchestra, combined with the Advanced Orchestra, was also honored with a first place in the Middle School Orchestra or String Orchestra Division for the second time!! (First Time was two years ago, in 2015.)
