The 54th annual Augustana College Band Festival Concert will be held in the Mary V. Sommervold Hall of the Washington Pavilion at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12.
Each year, approximately 300 high school musicians are chosen from a five-state region to gather at Augustana and work with two fantastic guest conductors. This year the guest conductors are Mr. William Brent, director of bands at Northwestern State University of Louisiana, and Dr. Greg Handel, professor of music education at Northwestern State University of Louisiana.
The concert is open to the public. Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for seniors and students and can be purchased through the Washington Pavilion Box Office at www.washingtonpavilion.org
