Commissioning Project

The National Band Association-Wisconsin Chapter seeks to further Instrumental Music Education through commissioning an original band work by a notable composer.  The work will be premiered by our students and then will hopefully be added to the repertoire of quality band music available to the world. The NBA-WC has commissioned Robert Sheldon to compose a piece for premier by our All State Band at our 2019 State Convention. 

A work of this magnitude is costly and donations are accepted and appreciated. No amount is too large or too small, all are appreciated.  Please consider donating by using the link below.  If you wish to donate a larger amount and become a member of the consortium, see the form letter below.  Thanks much for the support of our students and instrumental music education in our State, Country and World.
