We will be holding a New Member Information meeting on Wednesday, May 15th, 6:00 pm, at the CNS High School Auditorium (parade band practice to follow at 7:00 pm) for anyone interested in learning more about the Northstars Marching Band.   The director and parent board will be on hand to talk about marching band and answer your questions. 

Northstars Indoor is now known as Northstars Winds & Percussion (NWP)!!  We’ve rebranded this year because it’s going to be better than ever!

Come to our introduction meeting on Monday November 19th at 6:00pm at the CNS High School Lower Gym.  It’s the last night before the Macy’s trip, so we’ll keep it very brief, but we want to hit the ground running after Macy’s is over.   In addition to our local Syracuse and Rochester shows we’ll be competing at a WGI Regional in Kentucky, where we’ll see and compete with several other winds ensembles from across the country.

Hope to see everyone there!!  2018 looks to be an exciting year for the new Winds and Percussion Ensemble!!
