The 2nd annual NIU Concert Band Festival, presented by the NIU Huskie Marching Band and the Phantom Regiment, is a little more than a month away (March 1 & 2). With some great clinicians and a wonderful concert hall, this is a great educational experience for both middle school and high school concert bands.
Held in a non-competitive, festival setting, clinicians include Major Bryan Miller (Air National Guard Band of the Midwest), Steve Squires (Roosevelt University) and Dr. Thomas Bough (Northern Illinois University).
Each band comes away with a studio quality recording of the concert, a well as recordings of clinicians’ commentary and the live clinic held after each performance.
As an added bonus, the NIU Wind Ensemble, under the direction of Dr. Ronnie Wooten will perform for all of the participants.
