Greetings from Purdue University!  I hope your school years have been rewarding and that your performances have been excellent.

We’ve just started registration for the 2017 Purdue Summer Concert Band.  This ensemble is open to all area musicians high school age and over, and always includes a nice cross-section of the Greater Lafayette community.  This ensemble is free, and open to all.  We begin rehearsals on Tuesday, June 20, and rehearse on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 4:00-5:30 PM at the Elliott Hall of Music Room 15.  Our primary concert will be held on Tuesday, July 18, 7:30 PM at the beautiful Slayter Center on Purdue’s campus, and we may have an additional brief performance the Thursday evening prior to or following our concert.

Please feel free to send this registration notice out to your high school ensembles.  All interested parties may register at the following link:


You can reach out to me (conaway@purdue.edu) with any questions about the ensemble.  I hope to see you and your students join us this summer!

Warmest Regards,

Matt Conaway
