(Casper, Wyo) - Wyoming Symphony Orchestra and The Hill Music Company are joining forces to help young Wyoming musicians further their musical ability, through the opportunity to win a new string or wind instrument.

The Wyoming Symphony Orchestra and The Hill Music Company wish to give a musical step up to one lucky winner. To apply, simply download an application form and instruction packet from the WSO website, www.wyomingsymphony.org/outreach. Applicants will need to write a short essay about the importance of music and their particular instrument to their lives, and include references from music teachers, family, and friends.
