STEVENS POINT (WAOW) -

Thousands of young musicians showed off their skills Saturday at some special Wisconsin School Music Association events across the state.

One of the venues was in Stevens Point.

Organizers said nearly 3000 Wisconsin middle schoolers and high schoolers took part. Musicians said this unique opportunity to play is a big confidence boost.

"It really, I used to be so nervous on stage and it really has helped me a lot, and I feel more comfortable," said Nicole Tessen of Iola.

Organizers said students have to pass a rigorous evaluation before they can participate. They said it's a great way to showcase Wisconsin's talented young musicians.
