Northeastern Wisconsin Concert Band

We regret to inform you our Fall Concert scheduled for October 31, 2021 has been cancelled.
It was exciting to see how many members of our community were enthusiastic about resuming our rehearsals with a goal of a concert in October. When we made the decision to proceed, the COVID cases in Wisconsin and the nation were declining and we assumed the worst was past.
 
Unfortunately the Delta variant has emerged as a threat to those unvaccinated, children, and even those who have received any of the three vaccines. As cases continue to rise dramatically in our state and in our area, we feel that in order to not be part of the problem, the prudent decision is to postpone the fall rehearsals and concert until the spring.
 
This is not a decision we made lightly. We will set our sights on reorganizing safely in the spring.
 
With regrets,
 
The NEW Band Board

The Northeastern Wisconsin Concert Band


       Serving musicians in the Wisconsin Counties of Brown, Marinette,                      OcontoShawano, and Michigan's Counties of
Menominee, and Dickinson.


The Northeastern Wisconsin Concert Band was founded in 1993 as an open membership, adult ensemble.  From the very first rehearsal to the present, the band has grown to a fine balance of instrumentation of  80+ members.  The band draws its membership from a six county area north of Green Bay, WI.  There are no auditions or fees for membership.  The only "pay" members receives is a dinner get-together; an after-glow social following each public performance.



The Northeastern Wisconsin Concert Band performs two public concerts annually.  Rehearsals begin in March/April concluding after 6 rehearsals with a public concert in late April or early May; rehearsals then resume in September and conclude, again with a concert in late October or early November.


Following each public concert performed at Marinette High School in Marinette, WI, a private concert is performed the following evening, by a smaller group of band members, at one of the nursing or assisted living facilities in the area.

 The Band is financed by concert receipts ($5 for adults and $2 for students), donations and concert sponsorships.  Sponsorships are $250 for a single concert or $500 for the concert season of two concerts.  We thank all of our sponsors for their generosity and interest in community music.
