Carnegie Hall – New York 2018

CarnegieHallStage

The New York Wind Band Festival has chosen the Kingsburg High School Wind Ensemble to be one of six performing groups featured at it’s 2018 festival! This is indeed a prestigious and well-earned honor for our group of young musicians.

The exact dates of the trip to the festival are March 3 – 7, 2018 and we will perform in Carnegie Hall on Tuesday, March 6. More details of our itinerary will become available soon.

This invitation comes in no small part to the work done by the past seven years of students who have passed through our program. This year’s class of 2017 Seniors deserve a huge thank you. Because of their leadership and musicianship these past four years, along with that of our younger members, we are able to offer this amazing opportunity to our students.

If the Kingsburg High Vikings Marching Band has more bounce in their steps, it could be because of its new band uniforms. The new uniforms, replacing ones that were 10 years old, were first revealed at a recent home game.
