In addition, this ensemble also frequently tours throughout the region and has been invited to perform for the College Band Directors National Association Eastern Division conference in 2018, the New York State Band Directors Association Conference in March 2015 and the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Conference in December of 2013.
