The Heatherwood Middle School Advanced Band will perform at the National Association for Music Education (NAfME) Northwest Conference at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon on February 16, 2013.
According to Mary Waggoner, Everett Public Schools Director of Communications, “The band will be featured in a ‘concert hour’ performance with a large audience of music educators and school administrators from throughout the region. The NW Conference happens every other year and draws music teachers and college students from Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon and Alaska.”
“Being invited to perform for this conference is quite an honor as groups are chosen by audition. The Heatherwood band is the first ensemble from Everett to be invited to perform at a NW Conference in over 20 years.”
Mill Creek residents can attend a special concert for the community at Jackson High School on February 11, 2013 at 7:00 PM.
