MHS freshman Cody Chen has been selected to the Wisconsin School Music Association Honors Band.
This achievement sets Cody apart as one of the finest high school trombone players in the state of Wisconsin and the youngest student from Menomonie to ever audition into the band.
Cody is the son of John and Barbara (Bauer) Chen.
From the WSMA website:
Started in 1967, the WSMA State Honors Music Project provides musically accomplished students with an opportunity to rehearse and perform with the nation’s finest conductors in a professional, highly disciplined setting. Selected through a rigorous audition process, students are challenged to perform at their musical best throughout the short rehearsal period, which culminates with a performance in October in conjunction with the Wisconsin State Music Conference held in Madison each year. For many of these young musicians, the WSMA State Honors Music Project offers the experience of a lifetime, creating friendships, memories and skills they take with them in whatever path they choose.
