The American Prize – Semi-Finalist (2020)

I am happy to announce that the Liberty University Wind Symphony is a Semi-Finalist in The American Prize in Band/Wind Ensemble Performance – College/University Division for 2019-2020!  I have submitted recent recordings of the LU Wind Symphony, and our performances have earned us the distinction of Semi-Finalist.  I am unsure of when Finalists and winners will be announced.  Nonetheless, I believe this is already quite the honor! – Dr. Stephen Kerr
