Take 2: Joanne Shirkey Q&A on the WBHS marimba

Author: | Posted in Uncategorized No comments


Editor’s insight with Judy Steffes: One of the best stories I’ve enjoyed so far this year has been the marimba reunion with 1955 West Bend High School graduate Joanne Shirkey. I like it because I was able to bring some of her music to life.

Normally I’ll walk away from an interview with so much information – it’s challenging to share every tidbit in one article. This video captured some of the questions we peppered Joanne with as she just finished up Stars & Stripes Forever.

I thought her memory was fantastic – recalling something that happened in class 61 years ago.


Hope you enjoy the start of a new series at called ‘Take 2.’
