Festival Overview

Northshore Concert Band Festival of Music
Northwestern University, Evanston, IL
March 21-22, 2019

Concert band clinics

Your concert band will have the opportunity to work with highly-regarded university directors, all of whom have a great deal of clinic experience, for a 50-minute clinic in a noncompetitive, nonrated format. The clinics, which are not open to the public, are informal, with no requirements about the number or types of pieces to be performed. It’s a unique, no-pressure environment for your ensemble to work with and receive valuable feedback from outstanding educators. Band clinics are extremely popular, and space is limited, so be sure to reserve a place for your ensembles early!

The trip to perform as part of the Northshore Concert Band Festival is one of our most highly anticipated events of the year. The band immediately plays with more focus and energy after their clinic. It is truly one of the most beneficial activities you can do with your band.”
