New Music Favourites for Concert Band

Friday, August 23rd

This session will feature highlights of our 2019 New Music Favourites Collection, chosen for the teachers in the region. The presenter will review and discuss each title and its potential performance and pedagogical applications. Each title will have a recording and score to work from.

During our professional development sessions, the presenter will share insights and experiences to provide tips and strategies for building great student musicians and musical communities.
