Coe-Brown Northwood Academy
Excellence in Music, Excellence in People
Welcome to the Coe-Brown Northwood Academy Program. Our goal is to produce the finest musicians possible while creating an atmosphere that allows the student to grow into the best person they can be. Joining the band program at Coe-Brown means being a part of a family that loves to learn and work hard. If you are interested in being a part of a great team this is the place for you.
In February 2021 the CBNA Concert Band welcomed special guest conductor Mr. Terry White, a prolific composer, educator, and teacher from Maine to help us prepare for the NHMEA Large Group Festival! Following our performance on March 19th the CBNA Concert Band earned top honors with a "4" Rating!
This year we were lucky enough to put on a Winter Concert with all of our ensembles. Our students worked hard to put on a great performance under strict safety conditions and yet rose to the occasion. Please check out this YouTube video of our Winter Arts Festival Concert originally recorded on November 5th and 6th 2020!
One of our goals for the CBNA Music Department is to bring our students out to watch professional and high quality performances as much as possible. This is us in the Spring of 2019 at the Boston Ballet to watch a performance of Sergei Prokofiev's "Cinderella."
In March 2019 the CBNA Concert Band performed in the New Hampshire Music Educator's Large Group Festival for the first time. Our students worked hard to prepare for this performance and did a fine job. They performed for 3 top notch adjudicators and had a workshop afterwards with one of the clinicians. The students had a great time being able to hear from great ensembles from across the state and are looking forward to participating again in 2020!
Members of the CBNA Band Program attended the UNH Traditional Jazz Series Concert featuring Carl Allen and the Art of Elvin on Monday, September 10th. This was an unbelievable show and a great opportunity for our students to witness high caliber live jazz. Students had a chance to meet some of the musicians backstage after the show as well!
The CBNA Concert Band came together for our annual CBNA Band Welcome BBQ! This was a great day filled with sight reading music that will be performed throughout the year, fantastic food, and (highly) competitive basketball and Wiffle Ball. Thank you to all of the Band parents that volunteered their time and cooking skills to make our BBQ a wonderful time!
