POWELL, Wyo. — About 200 of the best high school music students from the Big Horn Basin will be in Powell Friday and Saturday, Nov. 16 and 17, for the 2012 North Big Horn Basin District Music Clinic.

Choir and band students will spend both days working on music to present at a 2:30 p.m. concert Saturday in the Nelson Performing Arts Center Auditorium at Northwest College.

This year’s guest directors are both from Montana—Lindsey Wilkerson, choral director at Custer County High School in Miles City, will conduct the choir, and Kelly Berdahl, director of bands at Bozeman High School, will direct the band.

Participating students from Big Horn, Hot Springs, Park and Washakie counties were selected by their music teachers.

Sponsored by the Northern Big Horn Basin Music Educators Association, the clinic is conducted by the Music Department at Northwest College. NWC music faculty Neil Hansen and Jan Kliewer are organizing chairpersons.

Admission to the Saturday concert is free.
