Symphonic Winds invited to perform at GSU!

I am excited to announce the the NGHS Symphonic Winds has been invited to perform at the Music for All Southeastern Regional Concert Band Festival at Georgia State University in March of 2018.  We will spend the day listening to other bands, playing a concert for an audience of other invited band programs and national adjudicators, and receive comments and a clinic to improve our performance.  This is a tremendous honor for our program and I look forward to our preparation and performance!  Congratulations to everyone who performed Children’s March and Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night, our submissions for the application.  We will share the stage with some very fine programs from Georgia, Florida and Alabama.
