Youth Bands of Atlanta (YBA) was created for students who wish to perform in an ensemble beyond the normal school day. Ensembles at both the middle school and the high school levels are available.
The YBA membership, chosen through a process involving director recommendations, is composed of wind and percussion performers from the public, private, parochial and home schools in the metropolitan Atlanta area. All members must be actively involved in their school music program and must be recommended by their music teacher.
YBA ensembles perform a variety of repertoire ranging from traditional (transcriptions, marches and works of serious and artistic merit) to cutting-edge contemporary composition and music from popular media venues.
Youth Bands of Atlanta operates under the auspices of the Conn-Selmer Division of Education, headed by Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser. Through this unique relationship performers will have access to esteemed conductors, educators, composers, soloists and ensembles – providing an opportunity to experience music in a unique, rewarding, instructive and constructive environment.
