The Lake Washington Education Foundation approved a grant to fund the Rose Hill Junior High Symphonic Band’s trip to Victoria B.C. on March 5. Angela Laulainen, the band director at RHJH wrote a proposal to the LWEF to help fund the trip, which included several specific purposes, including giving the students the chance to experience border crossing and the culture and diversity of Victoria. The amount of funds approved covered the entire student cost for the trip. The band traveled to Victoria to participate in an International Band Festival at the University of Victoria during a day of international travel. The day included a morning rehearsal, border crossing, a guided city bus tour and time exploring the city. The band festival included a performance, adjudication, and an on-stage clinic. The band students gave a professional and high quality performance at the festival, and should be congratulated for the work that went into their performance.
