George Mason High School musicians participated in the 25th annual Virginia Commonwealth University Invitational Festival of Winds, Brass and Percussion on Jan. 14. The festival gives students an opportunity to play in an ensemble of like instruments. GMHS instrumental musical director Mary Jo West was the saxophone clinician and director for the saxophone group.
Musicians spent the day with an artist-clinician to address specific instrumental techniques. The event culminated in an evening concert at the Singleton Performing Arts Center on the VCU campus.
