2025 All-State Senior Band

Coordinator Update

Greetings from Westby! My name is Kory Dahlia, and I am the new WCBA All-State Band Coordinator. I am completing my 21st year as a music educator and am the current band director at Westby High School. I would like to thank Monte Dunnum for all his years of service to the All-State Band. He has set an illustrious standard that I will do my best to uphold in the coming years.

This past January, I had the pleasure of assisting Monte, and I can say that the location of UW-Whitewater, in combination with the expertise of Colonel Graham, kept our students on their toes while creating an unforgettable experience. I am happy to say that we will be returning to UW-Whitewater next year, and our students will be working under the baton of Alex Kaminsky, Director of Bands and Associate Professor of Music at VanderCook College.

Please take the time to reach out to colleagues and encourage them to nominate some of their wonderful students this coming year. Stay tuned for more information in the fall newsletter, and don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions in the meantime!

Director of Bands, Westby Area High School
