We will attempt to reschedule these meetings, and will communicate this in upcoming emails.

 

Cincinnati Regional Concert Band Festival: March 3

Mason Band Boosters is hosting the 2nd annual Cincinnati Regional Concert Band Festival. The festival is affiliated with Music for All and is an opportunity for High School and Middle School concert bands to perform for and be evaluated by highly esteemed music educators. Thirty bands from around the region will attend this event on March 3, including a feature performance from the Bowling Green State University Wind Symphony.

 

Of course, we can't pull off an event like this without your help!  Sign-ups are live in Charms now!  We need your help with tasks such as parking, concessions, ticket sales, ushers, band guides, hospitality, food donations and more.  Last year was a huge success thanks to all of our volunteers -- please consider helping us again! Any questions can be directed to musicfestival@masonbandboosters.com.
