Congratulations National Band Association Blue Ribbon Award Winners, 2016

The National Band Association (NBA) recently awarded the Tarpon Springs Leadership Conservatory for the Arts the 2016 National NBA Programs of Excellence Blue Ribbon Award.  The Conservatory was recognized in Chicago at the Mid-West National Band and Orchestra Conference.  The Tarpon Springs Leadership Conservatory was the only high school in the United States that was selected for this honor.

The National Band Association recognizes outstanding bands in the United States with this award.  Their Programs of Excellence Blue Ribbon Award is part of the association’s initiative to honor bands across the nation that challenge students and promote standards of excellence.  To be eligible for a Blue Ribbon Award, bands must submit multiple recordings, videos, documentation of success in performing arts festivals and recommendations from prominent music educators.  The data is then reviewed by a state chairman, a division committee and a national panel of prominent collegiate music educators.  Bands chosen for this prestigious award must demonstrate a history of excellence in their program.

This recognition signifies what can be achieved when we work together towards attaining excellence in every aspect of our lives.  We would to thank our staff, students, parents, alumni, and administrators for their contributions to our legacy of excellence, which resulted in this achievement.
