The festival was held on the campus of Lebanon Valley College on Jan. 11 and was sponsored by the Lebanon Valley College chapter of the National Association on Music Educators.  The event included a full day of rehearsals culminating with a community concert in the evening. The “Band Fest” featured nearly 200 middle school students from area schools. Lynnette Fetzer directs Elizabethtown’s middle school band program.
