The Steel Magic Northwest “Pan Wizards” advanced youth steel ensemble will be taking two trips next year.
The group has been invited to perform and give a presentation at the National Association of Music Educators regional conference in Portland, Ore., in February. And in June, the group will embark on its inaugural four-day tour into western Montana and northeastern Oregon.
The group is by invitation or audition only and is comprised of young musicians from the area who are students from grades 7-12.
Auditions for the Pan Wizards are open through Sept. 18.
Steel Magic Northwest also provides a preparatory group for students seeking to join the Pan Wizards (starting in the sixth grade).
Steel Magic Northwest is a local nonprofit organization.
