WIU Wind Ensemble and alumni embark on a charitable, cultural, and musical exchange in Salvador and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

WIU students on boat trip to Monk's Island.

Every college student hopes there will be at least one spring break trip that they will remember for the rest of their lives. Western’s Wind Ensemble student musicians are making those memories right now. They are travelling, performing, learning and teaching in Brazil. That’s a spring break trip no one will ever forget.

Oh, and did we mention they are donating 200 instruments to a children’s home? Add Charitable Ambassadors to that “best spring break ever” list.

Keep up with the tour by checking their On the Beat blog.
