2023 NCBF

2023 National Concert Band Festival

As you know, the Morton Marching Band just concluded a historic and successful marching
band season! We are looking forward to continuing this level of success during the concert band season by challenging all students to improve musically. The Morton High School Wind
Ensemble will have the opportunity for tremendous growth as they prepare for their performance at the 2023 Music for All National Festival. Donation information can be found at the bottom of this page.

What is the Music for All National Festival?
The 2023 Music for All National Festival is held in Indianapolis from March 31 – April 2. The
festival is considered the nation’s premier non-competitive festival for scholastic instrumental
music ensembles and hosts more than 55 high school and middle school ensembles from across the country. Student musicians will participate in music education workshops and perform at top venues, receiving evaluation and feedback from a panel of renowned conductors and clinicians. It is an honor to have been selected to attend after a rigorous application and audition process.

How much will the trip cost?
The cost for this experience will include charter bus transportation, two-night hotel stay, food,
and tuition. To be transparent, the total cost of this experience is approximately $750 per student, but we anticipate the actual amount due in the spring will be substantially less per student made possible by donations.

How can we help lower the cost of this trip for each student?
We are seeking your help now to raise as much money as possible to offset the total cost for each Wind Ensemble student. Every dollar raised lowers the overall cost for each student.  
There are two ways to donate:
 Online Donation Form
 Mail checks payable to Morton Band Parents (Indicate Wind Ensemble in the memo)
