More than 80 talented young musicians came together from across the state to entertain the morr than 3,000 FFA members, advisors and guests during the convention, performing at several convention sessions.

The band members were selected by application and audition tapes by the State Band Director, Monte Dunnum, director of instrumental music at Westby High School.

“The first time these students practice together is at the state FFA

Convention. They begin rehearsing the first morning of the convention and shortly after perform for the entire convention. They are a really talented group,” says Cheryl Zimmerman, State FFA executive director.

The State FFA Band also represents the Wisconsin Association of

FFA at the Wisconsin State Fair in West Allis in August. They perform over a four-day span at events during the fair.

Students must be a member of their local FFA chapter in order to participate in the State FFA Band. Students must submit their application and audition tape to the Wisconsin FFA Center by Feb. 5.

The Wisconsin Association of FFA is a leading student organization due to the efforts of more than 20,400 students across the state. With a focus on premier leadership, personal growth and career success, students’ FFA activities complement agricultural classroom instruction by giving them an opportunity to apply their skills and knowledge while gaining real-world experience. These activities are dependent on donor funding through the Wisconsin FFA Foundation.
