Pittsboro, NC - The Northwood High School Concert band is continuing the long-standing tradition of saluting everyone who has served or is currently serving in one of our Armed Forces. The concert is Thursday, May 21, at 7:00 p.m. in the Benjamin Lee auditorium at Northwood High School.

General admission tickets are $10 or $8 for students and veterans. Reserved tickets are $15 and $13 respectively. The public is invited to attend and enjoy music by American composers such as William Harbinson, Robert Sheldon and many more.

"The band has worked diligently all semester long to prepare exciting music for the community to enjoy. We have two student conductors, Andrew Southerland and Coburn Jones, this year that have worked with the band and they will present their pieces at the concert. I am very excited about our special musical guests The Shelbys. They will entertain us with their modern bluegrass stylings during the main concert. And of course the Jazz Ensemble will play dance music during the dessert reception,” said Eugene Cottrell, director.
