The band participants were selected by application and audition tapes by the State Band Director, Monte Dunnum, recently retired Director of Instrumental Music at Westby High School.

Truly, they are an exceptionally talented group,” says Cheryl Zimmerman, State FFA Executive Director. Additionally, the State FFA Band represents the Wisconsin Association of FFA at the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis in August. The band performs over a four-day span at events during the fair.

The Wisconsin Association of FFA is grateful to the State FFA Band and Chorus for their dedication at the state convention. It is a week filled with rigorous rehearsals and performances to provide entertainment with those attending the annual state convention and share their talent with all.
