With the launch of the National Concert Band Festival in 1992, Bands of America rekindled the concert band tradition in America as exemplified by the National Band Contest in the 1930s, which drew national recognition for a young director named William D. Revelli. No other event for bands has the history and iconic legacy of the National Concert Band Festival. Dr. Revelli was instrumental in the philosophical design of the Festival. John P. Paynter worked closely on the creation of the Festival and hosted the debut event at Northwestern University in 1992. Music education icons, including Col. Arnald Gabriel, Anthony Maiello, Ray Cramer and Gary Green have been part of the Festival since day one and continue to be the unique force behind this powerful experience. Midwest Clinic board member Richard Crain and Mrs. Gayle Crain served for many years as coordinators of the Festival. The Music for All National Festival has an aura of heritage and a unique musical legacy that cannot be duplicated.
