NSU Band


Greetings from the Director:

As the newly appointed Director of Bands, I would like to welcome you to the Band website for Northeastern State. I am excited to get to work and serve the great students that come to NSU. Music should be a part of a good college education for all students, and if you play an instrument, there is a place for you in the NSU bands. We have ensembles for everyone, from the RiverHawk Marching Band, the Basketball Band to the Communiversity Band and the auditioned Wind Ensemble. I look forward to meeting you and helping you perform to your highest potential while forming lasting friendships and memories.

Music enriches life, and there is great power in group performance. As you collaborate with other musicians with the common goal of quality music-making, you will benefit greatly. Whether you have a strong passion for performing at high levels, want to get involved in one of the most active groups on campus, or just need a break from your other courses, come and join the band. I will see you there!

Dr. James Adams

Director of Bands
