    The NMS Band performs at both the Winter and Spring concerts. There is no audition for this ensemble; students who would like to play in the NMS Band should attend the September sign-up meeting. The NMS Band rehearses every Monday and Friday during the Resource/Activity (R/A) period. In addition to apperances at both the Winter and Spring concerts, members of the NMS Band (with superior rehearsal and concert attendance) have the oppurtunity to compete in Kutztown University's "Music in the Parks" Festival.

    The Jazz Band is a select ensemble that competes in several events throughout the school year. An information meeting is held each September to distribute audition materials. The Jazz Band rehearses every Thursday morning, before school, from 7:30am until 8:45am.



    The Drumline is open to students who would like to perform on marching percussion and/or mallet instruments by audition only. Students in the Drumline must also be active members of the Concert Band and have regular attendance in weekly instrumental lessons.
