SOUSA ON THE STRIP
(What happens in Las Vegas, stays in Las Vegas)


Join a world-class conductor and adult instrumentalists from
around the country who love to make music together in the
National Community Band 2006.

This year we will recreate a John Philip Sousa Concert on the
beautiful campus of UNLV - just blocks away from the famed Las
Vegas Strip. We've got an exciting time planned for you and you
don't want to miss one note. We will have two options for
lodging, one for $60 and the other for $100 per night. The more
expensive one is a bit closer to the Strip, has a small casino
and other amenities than the lesser priced one. I'll have more
details in January in plenty enough time for you to make your
own arrangements.

The NCB2006 rehearsals will begin at 7:00pm on Friday, July 21
and continue Saturday late morning and afternoon, with a dress
rehearsal on Sunday midday and the concert scheduled for 3:00pm
on Sunday July 23, 2006. All rehearsals and the performance
will be held on the campus of the University of Nevada at Las
Vegas.

The conductor of the National Community Band next summer will be
Robert Foster. Bob is Professor of Music, and Assistant Chairman
of the Department of Music and Dance at the University of
Kansas. He is also the conductor of the award winning Lawrence
City Band in Lawrence, Kansas. He served as director of bands at
the University of Kansas from 1971 to August, 2002. I know you
will all enjoy Bob's skill and wit on the podium and the program
that he has selected will certainly be a crowd pleaser.

Everyone is invited to join the National Community Band 2006 and
enjoy the spirit of community music with "SOUSA ON THE STRIP"
under the direction of a world-class conductor. Fill out the
application below and send in your registration fee and enjoy a
weekend of great music making...and other activities associated
with LAS VEGAS:-).

Feel free to share this information with fellow band members in
your local community band.
