A message from Mrs Ellis:

Dear Parents and Musicians,

Welcome to a new year in Symphony Strings and Symphonic Winds.  These are two of the most advanced performance groups at Wilson High School and together they form our Symphony Orchestra.  I want to congratulate you on your acceptance this year!  HERE IS IMPORTANT INFO FOR YOU...

Parent Booster Membership - Attached is the WIMBO (Wilson Instrumental Music Booster Organization) Membership Drive.  Please consider joining WIMBO this year.  We need parent support in order to continue to achieve the goals of excellence that we have set.

Clothing Order Forms - will be given out this week.  We are offering Wilson Music   t-shirts, sweatshirts, and windbreakers for sale.  Support Wilson Music and show your school spirit by purchasing Wilson Music attire.
