The spring concert presented by the Northeastern Wisconsin (NEW) Concert Band is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Sunday, May 5, in the W.J. Jones Auditorium at Marinette High School, 2135 Pierce Ave., Marinette.

This is the concert band’s 26th season, and the concert will be under the direction of Glen Reinke and Robert Berndt, who each conduct half of the concert.

The NEW Concert Band is a volunteer organization, and includes over 70 school music educators and others from the Wisconsin counties of Brown, Marinette, Oconto and Shawano, and the Michigan counties of Menominee and Dickinson. It performs two different concerts each season, in the fall and spring.

Concert tickets will be available at the door for $5 for adults and $2 for students. The nonprofit band is financed entirely from concert receipts, donations and sponsorships.
