Wind Symphony Performs at Music for All National Festival

On Thursday, March 9th, the Centerville Wind Symphony performed at the 26th Annual Music for All National Concert Band Festival at Clowes Memorial Hall on the campus of Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Wind Symphony was one of 16 bands from across the country selected to perform as a “Featured Ensemble” at this prestigious event. Bands were represented from Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, New Jersey, Texas, Virginia, and Washington. This marks the second time that the Wind Symphony has performed at the National Concert Band Festival, having previously performed in 2013. In 2016, the Centerville Saxophone Quartet and Clarinet Quartet both performed at the Music for All Chamber Music Festival.

The Centerville Band program was also honored to perform on Saturday, March 11th with the United Sound National Ensemble, a group of musicians who teach students with special needs how to play musical instruments. The performance was given during the Honor Band of America concert, which was seen by nearly 5,000 people.



In addition, five Centerville students were representatives in the Honor Band of America: Joe Navarra (percussion), Grant Teserovitch (trumpet), Mieri Kim (clarinet), Nathan Rhodes (trombone), and Adam Julian (horn). These students auditioned in the fall along with thousands of other band students from across the country. Their musicianship and leadership were a huge presence in this national ensemble.

Congratulations to our Wind Symphony students for representing their school, district, and community in such a positive light in a very visible way! We are increasingly proud of their talents and accomplishments.
