Our Trip to China!

December 19, 2016

WWU's Wind Symphony tour in Shanghai - episode 1! Thank you so much for your help in getting us to China!

15 Visas Returned & 43 Flights to Shanghai

June 10, 2016

We have received back another batch of 15 VISA's for students going to Shanghai. The students each came up with $600 to contribute toward the airfare and we have everyone on the same flight. Next we need to rent the charter bus to get us back and forth from the airport! Then we have to purchase the baggage fees for the students' musical instruments!  Thank you everyone for your support. There is no stopping us now!

We have to get a band-ful of instruments to China

May 24, 2016

When musicians fly, they always have to accommodate extra-special luggage! Sometimes, instruments can take up extra seats, and they definitely take up extra space in the luggage. Since we can't perform without proper attire (or no attire...) we need funds to cover the costs of transporting our best friends - our brass, wind, and percussion instruments!

Thank You For Your Support!

Hello WWU Music Community,

Your donations have paid for our first round of Visa applications. We are so excited to share that we have received back 26 of our VISA's to China for the Shanghai MISA tour! Your generosity is so appreciated. The students will serve our community, university and reputation as outstanding ambassadors on this very special band tour. We thank you from the bottom of our heart.
