Posted on: January 22, 2018

On Saturday, 16 middle schools from around the state sent jazz bands to the 12th annual NAMS Music Festival. The event included performances by each school band and clinics taught by high school band directors, including West Albany High School Band Director Stuart Welsh.

The event is a fundraiser for the NAMS music program and provides an opportunity for all GAPS middle school bands to perform and observe other school bands.

Students also had the chance to see a performance by the band directors during the Directors’ Jam during the lunch hour. Concession stand.
