The EIBB has been invited to perform a concert at the 89th annual Iowa Bandmasters Association Convention on Thursday, May 12th at 7pm. The Iowa Bandmasters Association came into being at Fairfield, Iowa, on March 30, 1928. This organization, originated entirely by municipal band directors was formed partly because of threatened legislative action against the Band Law.
From these humble beginnings by a small group of dedicated bandmasters, the I.B.A. has grown to a membership of over 1000, most of whom are directors of school bands. It is one of the largest and most active of all state bandmaster organizations in the country. Its driving force has kept good bands and good band music thriving in communities of all sizes throughout the state of Iowa.
The concert will be in the Iowa Ballroom of the Des Moines Marriott Downtown. This concert is commemorating the EIBB’s 30th anniversary this year.
The Eastern Iowa Brass Band will close its 2015-2016 subscription series with their Spring Concert on Saturday, May 7th, 7:30 PM at the Mt Vernon Middle School Auditorium.
