We hosted the N.E.S.B.A (New England Scholastic Band Association) Finals at our high school. It's nothing but a crazy thrill as a band parent and I hope as a band student to be part of such an event.
The buses rolled in all day as we hosted 24 schools. This was an outdoor event and quite chilly in the evening, but the food booth kept everyone warm with chicken pot pie, hot cocoa, hot dogs and nachos.
I personally scooped apple crisp for 5 hours!
While the judges tabulated the scores, we were treated to an exibition by the University of Lowell and the University of Connecticut marching bands. I had never seen a band perform live as big as UConn, with 300+ members strong.
