…the Ninth Annual Wind Band Invitational and New Concert Band Music Reading Session to be held November 19th and 20th at Capital University, Columbus, Ohio. This annual event is co-sponsored by Capital University and Stanton’s Sheet Music and is a great way to experience the best new music for concert band at all levels performed by actual students instead of the professionals heard on the publisher promotions.
Highlights of this year’s Reading Session include: guest conductor, Brian Balmages; Directors’ Reading Band – bring your instrument and play; All-Ohio High School Reading Band and Capital University Wind Symphony directed by Jeffrey Shellhammer; Capital University Symphonic Winds directed by William Boggs; Hilliard Davidson High School Wind Ensemble directed by David Handshue; Columbus Junior Winds directed by James Dowdy; and a display by Stanton’s Sheet Music featuring ALL of the titles being read and performed so that you can hear them live, view the pieces you’re interested in, and purchase on-site.
The Reading Session is FREE to directors, with registration taking place on-site both mornings. If you have other commitments, you’re welcome to attend either day, or parts of both days.
Join us for two days of camaraderie, music-making and the BEST new music for concert band this year!
