Making music: WSHS @ Husky Band Day

The photo and report are from West Seattle High School music director Ethan Thomas:

The West Seattle High School Band participated in the 66th Annual Husky Band Day at the University of Washington vs Arizona State football game on Saturday, 9/22. They participated alongside over 2,500 students representing 32 High Schools from across the state as well as the 200+ member Husky Marching Band. They combined to perform during halftime and played 5 songs, including the Husky Fight Song “Bow Down To Washington.” Two students from each high school were featured in an Honor Band as they performed “Believer” by the band Imagine Dragons. The Honor Band Students from West Seattle High School were Emma Laplante on Clarinet and Lola Demurger on Alto Saxophone. Also featured were two members of the WSHS drumline, Nate Wuethrich and Adam Chin, for a combined performance with the Husky Drumline.

You may notice in the picture that several of our students do not have uniforms. Due to the growth of the music program at WSHS in the past few years, we are in need of additional uniforms. We will be raising money over the next few months to purchase more uniforms to support the continued growth of our program. Visit the WSHS music department website at to find out more.

    What a great opportunity for the kids.  Thank you Mr. Thomas for making it happen.  Go Wildcats, and congrats to the Honor Band players.

Sorry, comment time is over.
