"The Ocean Springs High School Wind Symphony is one of four high schools in the country to be selected to perform at this year's Western International Band Clinic. To our knowledge, we are the first band selected from Mississippi in the history of WIBIC. The kids have been working hard since May for the upcoming performance on Friday. We are excited about a wonderful trip and look forward to the concert." -Kevin Shira, MS.
