Middle Level Honors Band Festival
For students in grades seven through nine.
The annual St. Norbert College Middle Level Honors Band Festival will be held on Saturday, Nov. 2, 2013.
Our guest clinicians this year will be Dr. Christopher Baumgartner and Dr. Dan Laing. Dr. Baumgartner is on the music education and band faculty at Middle Tennessee State University and Dr. Laing is Director of Bands at Hastings College in Hastings, Neb. Both of these educators have a wealth of experience working with young musicians and will provide a very rewarding experience for your students. Once again, we will host both a seventh and eighth grade band and a ninth grade band as part of our festival. Dr. Baumgartner will conduct the seventh and eighth grade band and Dr. Laing will conduct the ninth grade band.
To the right you will find links to the applications and the festival schedules. Feel free to duplicate the applications as needed and encourage your students to apply for this special event. Because space is limited, please advise them to send in their applications as soon as possible. Each application must include a director’s signature.
All applications must be received by Monday, Sept. 30, 2013. The registration fee for the Middle Level Honor band will once again remain at $45 and includes lunch. Please do not send payment until final selections have been made.
Please consider giving your students this wonderful opportunity to explore great music, make new friends and experience a small part of college life. If you have any questions, please contact the director of bands, Michael Knight, at 920-403-3114 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
