music director search

The National Concert Band of America (NCBA), based in the Washington, DC area, seeks the services of a charismatic Principal Conductor and Music Director who can lead this talented volunteer group in performing music befitting the modern Concert Band. NCBA was founded in 1974 by veterans from each of the premier service bands with a heritage in the traditions of the U.S. military bands. Today, the band is made up of active-duty and veteran musicians, as well as music educators and high-level amateur players. While still paying homage to the history and traditions of the wind band, NCBA prioritizes moving the wind band art form forward by commissioning 10 new works since 2019 and regularly performing music by composers of all backgrounds.
