All-State Band Member Chosen

by Samantha Fischer


Each year, approximately 3,000 of the best high school musicians in the state audition for the Nebraska All-State Band, Chorus, Jazz Band and Orchestra, which are sponsored by the Nebraska Music Education Association. Selection as a member of one of these groups is one of the highest music honors attainable in Nebraska. Mr. Matthew Rom, Director of Band Affairs for the Nebraska Music Education Association, is pleased to announce that Klarissa Norris, flute, will be among the 160 students selected to be a part of the 2019 All-State Band. 

When asked about what she looks forward to most, Norris said, “Getting to work with the director because he’s the director for the president’s own marching band and getting to work with a lot of dedicated musicians from across the state is really exciting.”

Guest conductor for the group will be Colonel Jason Fettig, Director of “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band. The All-State Band will rehearse Thursday, November 21, through Saturday, November 23, on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus, the host site of the 2019 NMEA Conference/Clinic. A final public concert will be held on Saturday, November 23, at the Lied Center for the Performing Arts on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln campus.
