The Nevada Music Educators Association All-State Festival features a middle school and high school level band. These ensembles include woodwinds, brass, and percussion. Students work closely with a guest conductor for two days before performing a final concert. Students who make the All-State bands are the top performers in Nevada. High school students audition to earn a spot in the ensemble, while middle school students are nominated by their middle school band director.
