Northeast Instrumental Music Festival

Next festival: November 16-19, 2017, Lake Placid, New York.

The Northeast Instrumental Music Festival brings together musicians of all ages, proving that music is a lifelong experience. Band members come from all over the Northeast and Midwest. High School students perform in the Northeast All-Star Concert Band. Adults play in the Great American Community Band.

The Festival is housed in one of Lake Placid's finest hotels - the High Peaks Resort overlooking beautiful Mirror Lake and the Adirondack Mountains. Rehearsals begin Friday evening (Thursday for students) and culminate in a concert held Sunday afternoon.

The 2017 Adult band will be conducted by Ronald Demkee, director of the famed Allentown Band. The repertoire and schedule is posted in the News section. 

Adult registration forms for 2017 are available here. (Students should make all arrangements through their teachers in September.)

We hope to see you in Lake Placid!
