Apply for instrument giveaway

The Wyoming Symphony Orchestra and The Hill Music Company are currently accepting applications for the 5th Annual 2020 Instrument Giveaway. Students grades 9-12 are given the opportunity to win a brand new “step up” wind or string instrument by submitting an essay on “what my instrument means to me.” Applications are due March 20 and require recommendations from educators. The student selected as the winner must be able to attend Hill Music Company’s annual sale in Casper on May 1 or 2 to select their new instrument.

For so many students, a new step-up instrument can make all of the difference — especially as they begin to think about their futures as young musicians post-graduation — but often, the cost of a new instrument is too great for students and parents to take on. Please help us spread the word to young musicians who could benefit from a prize like this.

The Man in the Arena

Attend a talk on Teddy Roosevelt and his love of books at Natrona County Library on February 19 at 6:30 p.m. “The Man in The Arena” is a celebration of Theodore Roosevelt—the essential American. Owen Wister, who knew him well, called him “the most American American who ever lived!” There is no subject about which he did not thirst for knowledge: history, politics, philosophy, nature, linguistics, taxidermy, poetry—the list is endless. He loved books—he read in seven languages, including Portuguese. He wrote books—36 books in all on a bewildering variety of subjects. He was a man who loved to talk philology with Harvard professors and bug collections with six-year-olds. Call 577-7323 or visit our website for more information.

Can’t get enough of Teddy Roosevelt? Join scholar and actor, Derek Evans, at his one-man Artcore show, “TR!,” on February 18 at 7:30 p.m., at Restoration Church, and get ready to “speak softly and carry a big stick.”
