Blaine high school’s wind ensemble got a boost in their fundraising efforts this year after they garnered a special performance by American Idol star Timothy Urban.
Urban, who was a top 10 finalist of contestants in season nine of the FOX reality singing competition, performed January 4 at the Blaine performing arts center. Money raised by the event will be used to help fund the band’s annual trip to Japan on January 25. The band has accepted their third invitation to perform as the International Student Band at the 2011 Funabashi Musical Festival in Tokyo.
