Recap: USBands 2017 Concert Series at Boston Symphony Hall

This weekend, USBands held the first of their of their 2017 Concert Series events at Boston Symphony Hall in Boston, MA. Students had the opportunity to perform their 2017 concert programs while receiving private clinical work with some of the best music directors in the country. Participating groups included the Greenwich High School Wind Ensemble, Malden High School Concert Band, Paramus Catholic Concert Band, Penncrest Concert Band and the Penncrest Wind Ensemble. 

"We love that we can provide students opportunities to perform in such important and historic venues," said USBands Director, Steve Petzinger. "The venues we work with during our Concert Series aren't places that you can just pop in and play. They have a sense of gravitas to them, and to be able to bring students here is a great experience."

Each ensemble was evaluated in a noncompetitive environment by the attending music professionals as a part of the once-in-a-lifetime experience. The next event in our Concert Series is on April 10, at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia. 

Registration for our 2018 USBands Concert Series is already open, with a continuing focus on providing scholastic wind ensembles, concert bands, orchestras, jazz ensembles and choral groups into the world's finest performance venues. To register your program for our 2018 Concert Series, click here
