The Robert L. Bradley Elementary School Band is comprised of 70 highly motivated Fifth and Sixth Graders from the New Hartford School District.  All students receive one lesson per week in a small lesson group setting under the direction of their conductor Jo Anne Goodemote. 

The Bradley Band regularly participates in NYSSMA Major Organization Festivals and consistently receives Gold and Gold With Distinction ratings.  Members of the band enjoy performing in events sponsored in and around the community.  The Bradley Band was honored to have been selected to perform at the 2011 NYSSMA Winter Conference.  The Bradley Band also performed and presented a clinic at the NYSBDA 2010 Symposium.  Recently, the Bradley Band traveled to the state capital and performed for MIOSM in Albany.
