Ciara Wells, an oboe player from Roundup, says she's been playing oboe for two years. She's excited to perform a Handel Concerto.

Isabella Whitworth is a flute player from Billings Senior. She says events like this give you a unique opportunity to see players with varying skill levels and degrees of musicianship. Whitworth says it's inspiring and she's grateful for the listening opportunities.

Organizers for the annual event say it was a success; it helped spread the universallanguagee of music.
