Local high school chosen to perform at national festival and conference

Posted: Updated:
VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -

A local high school band was chosen as one of 16 schools across the country to perform at the Bands Of America festival and conference.

The Mountain View High School Band in Vancouver is the only school from the Northwest that will attend this year.

The band will be performing on the "Featured Stage."

The conference is being held in Indianapolis, IN staring March 6. 

The band is asking for help raising the funds to attend.

If you would like to help you can donate on the crowd sourcing site Indiegogo.com.

The last day to help donate is Nov. 24.

Any money they raise over the goal will go to the band's scholarship fund to help kids and families who are not able to cover the cost of the trip.

The Mountain View High School music program has also been invited to the Washington Music Educators Convention in February.
