This is your NYSFBC
Band directors and students rehearse, travel, and compete. Judges arrive from all over, to fill out score sheets and record comments and suggestions. Band parents and spectators cheer, wave banners, and support their children on and off the field. For all involved, this is your NYFBC:
Purpose & Philosophy
Bands from the NYSFBC have had a long tradition of excellence. Many groups from the conference have been recognized in regional and national competitions. Our mission and philosopy support such positive participation and experience.
The New York State Field Band Conference was formed on February 6, 1972 in Sherburne, New York when interested directors were asked to remain after a meeting of the the Sherburne Pageant of Bands. Find out how the organization has helped marching bands compete and grow ever since.
