The Elkhorn South Storm Wind Ensemble has been selected to perform at the 58th Annual National State Bandmasters Association (NSBA) state convention. The wind ensemble made up of 50 10th-12th grade Elkhorn South musicians, auditioned to be one of four bands that will perform various musical selections for the convention attendees. Several outstanding bands submitted recordings to a panel of band directors that blindly selected the four bands. “The NSBA state convention is a gathering of likeminded music educators that share valuable insights, attend informative education sessions, and network with fellow colleagues to form lasting relationships. To be selected for this prestigious experience is a great honor for our students, Elkhorn South and our school district” said Michelle Bluford, Directors of Bands, Elkhorn South. 


The wind ensemble will perform on Friday, March 1st, at 4:30 p.m. at Kimball Recital Hall on the UNL campus. For more information about upcoming events where the Elkhorn South Storm Bands will be performing, please visit
