ACB holds an annual convention where directors, band members, managers, industry leaders, administrators, and educators exchange personal views, share experiences, and learn from educational seminars and musical performances. Each year, the convention is held in a different location, hosted by a member band. This year's convention is being hosted by the East Wind Symphonic Band, based in the eastern suburbs of Pittsburgh.
As part of the annual convention, the ACB and the East Winds are proud to present the following concerts free of charge to the public.
