Sixth grade band wins first trophy
The 2022-2023 Willow Springs Sixth Grade Band won their very first band trophy this past weekend at the Fair Grove Music Festival. Director Jodie Forbes commented, "They received a Superior Rating (1), the first of many. This group of young people have only played their instruments for five months. In that time they learned to work as a team, and band to make beautiful music, harnessing that young energy."
