Best of the West Music Festival began as a one-day event in 2000 when 40 high school seniors joined the Colorado Mesa University Wind Symphony for a spectacular concert. Since that time, thanks to the generous support of Karen Combs and Lynn Wegener, the event has developed into a two-day affair culminating in an exciting performance featuring three bands consisting of over 280 talented high school musicians.
