Waconia’s Colin Swee savors All-State Band experience

Waconia High School senior Colin Swee defied recent traditions by making the Minnesota All-State Band on trombone this year.

“When I made it in, I initially didn’t believe it,” Swee said. “No one (from Waconia) had made it into the band for several years running.”

The All-State Band is a highly competitive, audition-only group that draws members from across the metropolitan area and the state and invites those talented individuals to a week-long camp at the beginning of August, held on the campus of the University of Minnesota – Duluth. The chance to meet and play with some of the state’s top musicians was an honor for Swee. See more in SunPatriot story by Melissa Marohl.
