During spring break 2013, the Symphonic Band will tour in Cuba, where we will perform and distribute donated instruments. Support the band's Cuban tour:

  • Support the band tour with a donation: Give online or mail a check to Northwestern College, ATTENTION: Band Tour. (Write "band tour" in the check's memo.)
  • Donate an instrument: Instruments in good working condition can be brought to the NWC music department. Instruments in need of repair can be delivered to Ray's MidBell Music, Sioux City. Repairs are at the donor's expense but will include a 20% discount.

Ray’s Mid-Bell Music has generously partnered with us in this project in many ways. We are deeply grateful for their involvement and support of the Northwestern College Band program and specifically this tour to Cuba.
