The Niceville High School Wind Ensemble will travel to Columbus, GA on February 27 to perform at the Southern Division College Band Directors National Association/National Band Association (CBDNA/NBA) conference.  After submitting an audition tape, the NBA selection committee used a “blind audition process” (one that conceals the name of the ensemble). The process ultimately led to selecting the Niceville Wind Ensemble as one of five high school bands to perform as a part this artistic and scholarly event.

This marks the first appearance by the Niceville High School Wind Ensemble and the only Okaloosa County Band to perform at a CBDNA/NBA function.

There are eight college bands and two middle school bands also performing at the convention. Although the conference encompasses the entire Southeastern United States, three of the five high school bands performing at this year’s conference hail from the great state of Florida.

The Niceville High School Wind Ensemble is under the direction of Daniel Wooten.
