The NCCU Marching band has combined with community organizations Bull City United
and Lover Over Hate NC to celebrate a Day of Harmony which will feature the high school bands
and other music groups. The “Day of Harmony” will consist of the NCCU
Band Blast Band Clinic and the “Bull City Battle of the Bands”.
The theme of the Band Blast/Bull City Battle of the Bands events this year will be
centered around building life skills through music and promoting peace in our community.
The idea is that the students will "arm" themselves with life skills through things
that we can emphasize while we teach music. The acronym that we will be using is



Life Essentials:
1. Self-Discipline
2. Manners
3. Morals
4. Respect
5. Character
6. Trustworthiness
7. Patience
8. Class
9. Gratitude
10. Love

These skills will be emphasized heavily during the “Band Blast” Clinic during 10am-2pm as they prepare for the Bull City Battle of the Bands performance later that evening
