Northeastern Wisconsin Concert Band
N.E.W. Spring Concert
May 1, 2016, 3:30 pm @ Marinette High School
The Northeastern Wisconsin Concert Band
Serving musicians in the Wisconsin Counties of Brown, Marinette, Oconto, Shawano, and Michigan's Counties of
Menominee, and Dickinson.
The N.E.W. Band was founded in 1993 as an open membership, adult ensemble. From the very first rehearsal to the present, the band has had, by sheer chance, a fine balance of instrumentation. 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" each member receives is a dinner get-together; an after-glow social following each public performance.
The N.E.W. Concert Band plays two concert "seasons" each calendar year. Rehearsals begin in
March or April and conclude, after 6 rehearsal, with two concerts in late April or early May;
rehearsals then resume in September and conclude, again with a duo of concerts in late October.
The concerts consist of one public concert performed at Marinette High School and a concert the following evening, by a smaller group of band members, at one of the nursing or assisted living facilities in the area.
Band is financed by concert receipts ($5 for adults and $2 for students), donations and concert sponsorships. These 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.
