We have two social
events during the year. Our Annual Banquet is scheduled for Sunday October 22, 2017, location is tentatively the Airport Shilo Inn at which time we will induct new members. This is not a business
meeting. The other social event is our Summer/Picnic Board Meeting.
The 2017 Summer Board Picnic/BBQ Meeting July 16, 2017, George Fox Music Building, Green room. 12:00 noon. Although there will be a board meeting on this date, NWBA members and spouses are welcome and encouraged to attend. Members refer to Group email sent June 16, 2017 for RSVP. More information to be posted soon.
DUVALL MUSIC LENDING LIBRARY: If you are involved in a
Community Concert Band, you may be interested in music available from
the ROBERT DUVALL
MUSIC LENDING LIBRARY. We recently had seventy-five concert band selections
donated to the Robert Duvall Music Lending library. If you have a library
of concert band music you are no longer using, consider donating them
to the library. Do you know of a school who may be down-sizing their library
and purging band arrangements they no longer want, or have duplicate copies
of music they do not need? We would be interested in adding them to the
DUVAL MUSIC LENDING LIBRARY. We are currently in the process of developing
a new page on our website that will include more information and also
a current index of band titles available.
We recently received 10 boxes of music donated by the Portland Elks Lodge #142 band library. The library was moved in July 2016 from Glenn Tadina's residence to Tacoma Community College where the library will be managed by music students as part of their music training. Glenn has managed the library for the past ten + years and will still continue with a minor roll in the library.
