The Waukesha Area Symphonic Band was awarded the prestigious 2017 Sudler Silver Scroll Award by The John Philip Sousa Foundation. This award recognizes community bands in North America that consistently perform quality music at a very high level and contribute significantly to the cultural environment of their community. This is a great honor and we are proud to be nationally recognized as an outstanding community band.
