Dear Prairie Wind Ensemble Family,
I regret to tell you that due to the current effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus our concert on Thursday, March 19, is cancelled. As a result, there will be no rehearsal tonight at WCHS. This is certainly disappointing. This comes after ICC canceling large events on campus and Washington Community High School is advising older members of the community not to attend after school events. Some might view this as overly cautious, but this is what we feel best for our audience and membership.
