News is about Nik Caoile
They are: Other

The CWU orchestra has been selected to perform at this year's NAfME Northwest Division conference in Portland. The NAfME Northwest accepted performance applications from six Northwest states: Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Wyoming. Only a select few groups are chosen to perform at the conference, so it is quite an honor for our orchestra to receive this invitation.

Once again I must say that this invitation is an external confirmation that our orchestra is one of the best university orchestras in the Northwest and is quickly making a name for itself nationally.
