Concert Band Festival

The NSBA Concert Band Festival will be held on Saturday, March 7th, 2015.  This event will be part of the annual March Convention.

The guest clinicians will be Robert Sheldon, Dan Peterson, and Matthew Smith.

This does not have to be a "summative" performance.  This is just an excellent chance to get your band in front of some fantastic clinicians and to make your band better.

From Past-President Michelle Bluford

Dear Membership,

As we head into the 2nd Semester, lets remember that we are the Beacons of HOPE to our kids! Others may scoff at the importance of what we do, but we know the truth!  Without band our kids would only know how to fill in the bubbles!

Lets teach our kids they can do anything, all they have to do is carry along their COURAGE!

See you in March!
