USSBA and The Cadets: Summer Romance

Tour Includes Free Stuff For You!

The US Scholastic Band Association (USSBA) and their sister program The Cadets, have teamed up for a mini national tour that offers band directors free tickets, mini clinics, up-close-and-personal meetings and a whole lot more.

As The Cadets travel the country, the USSBA staff will be joining The Cadets for a few weeks at competitions and rehearsals from Texas to Pennsylvania. These events are unique and can only be offered by a team such as Youth Education in the Arts; that is, a team that creates performing ensembles as well as events for bands from coast to coast.

The Cadets will be in Texas and the USSBA will be on hand to say hello, to answer questions and to facilitate registration for one of the record 15 USSBA events scheduled for Texas this fall. Here’s a quick link to the 2011 USSBA Texas Schedule.
