Band News - We're going to NMEA!
BAND News– We’re going to NMEA!
It all started last spring when Mrs. Murphy-Robb recorded the band and submitted the recording to the Nebraska Music Educators Association. Each November, a select few music groups get the opportunity to perform at the NMEA convention, held each November. A select few – usually class A, or collegiate groups, get chosen to perform, based on the recordings that are submitted in the spring. Mrs. Murphy-Robb knew our group was something special – so she sent in the recording. Low and behold – our Palmyra Panther Band was chosen to play! This is the highest honor a band or choir can receive in our state - to play to an audience of band and choir directors, plus the all-state band and choir members from across the state!
If you have the chance – come hear the Panther Band play at Kimball hall, next to the Lied center on UNL campus, at 11:00 am Friday November 21st. The students and Mrs. Murphy-Robb are honored to represent Palmyra & District OR-1. They’d love to have your support!
We'd also like to congratulate Carly Poskochil on being selected to play tenor saxophone in the all state band! Way to go Carly!!!
GO PANTHER BAND!
