As our tradition, we spend countless hours listening & searching for the best in new music from publishers that culminates in our annual choices for concert band, jazz band and choir.  

These hand-picked selections will be premiered at the above events.  


Our web page houses this exclusive collection of cherry-picked titles from our 25 years.  This is a great tool for the director when buying concert band, jazz, or choir music; also a great listening tool to use with your students.  

This web page with its heritage of a quarter century is one of the most unique of its kind in the industry.


Jazz, New ABA Syllabus, Teacher Reference and Choral will also be on hand at all sessions.  

Our unique and fun events feature generous Door Prizes 

Hors d'oeuvres  served while listening

and a complete BBQ!


Hope to see you there!  We wish the steady growth of these events to continue and hope the 25th will be the best yet!
