Welcome Friends

On behalf of the Conservatory of Music and Dance, WELCOME to our Bands at the Conservatory website. Please consider joining us for any of the events listed on the bands website. Music educators and student groups are always welcome!

Our capstone event will be the College Band Directors National Association Conference from March 15-18 in downtown Kansas City, featuring ten of the country’s best collegiate wind ensembles. Our Conservatory Wind Symphony concert on March 17th will highlight the best of what the Conservatory has to offer.

I am humbled to lead a program that focuses on two things: serving our art form with passion and relentlessness, and inspiring students on their journey toward a deeper awareness of music. We are Kansas City’s Conservatory, and we are proud to represent this city!

All the Best,

Steven D. Davis, Professor of Conducting
Director of Bands and Wind Ensembles
