2019 UAB Concert Band Invitational

Monday, April 16, 2018

We are excited to present this invitational opportunity for outstanding middle school and high school bands. Invited participants will perform in the beautiful Alys Stephens Center’s Jemison Concert Hall. Bands will be evaluated in a non-competitive process and will receive feedback from prominent music educators from across the country. At the day’s conclusion, participants will be honored in a Grand Finale Awards Ceremony¬† to celebrate the joys in sharing wonderful music-making. All participants will receive a t-shirt and a DVD of their group’s performance, and each band will receive a plaque to hang on the band room wall. This event is sure to become the highlight of the year for many band directors and their students!
