Northern State University Band Clinic
Wednesday, Nov. 14
There will be two 125-175 piece clinic bands (equal in size/balance) which will rehearse with both conductors during the morning and early afternoon. A brief concert including both festival bands and the NSU Symphonic Band will conclude the festivities.
The instrumentation of the bands is based entirely on director nomination and past experience of the student nominated. EVERY student nominated will be chosen to participate, so please nominate only your most outstanding and deserving students. We must have two quality bands capable of putting together a program in a limited amount of rehearsal time. Also, please nominate upperclassmen when possible.
Registration is online. Registration deadline is Oct. 19. We can accept late registrations however we cannot guarantee their names will make the program. The clinic fee is $15 per student, payable to NSU Band Clinic.
Music will be mailed directly to schools by Pepper Music in late October.
Graduate credit also available that day.
