Lenoir High School is a historic high school complex and national historic district located at Lenoir, Caldwell County, North Carolina. It was designed by the architectural firm Benton & Benton and built in 1922. It is a two-story, Classical Revival-style brick school with cast stone detailing. An addition was made in 1962. Connected to the main building by brick walls is the contributing 1935–1937 band building with additions designed by Captain James C. Harper. The property also has an original stone retaining wall. Lenoir High School closed its doors in 1977, when it merged with Gamewell-Collettsville High School and moved across town to form West Caldwell High School. The Lenoir High School building was then Willow St Middle School until 1981.

The North Carolina Brass Band, under the direction of Brian Meixner, is a 28-member ensemble composed of many of the finest brass players and percussionists in the state. The band includes symphony orchestra musicians, leading soloists, chamber music professionals, jazz artists, brass and percussion professors at universities throughout the region, and highly sought-after freelance professionals. The diverse musicians of the NCBB have come together to create an ensemble as colorful and rich as the literature they perform. The NCBB provides concertgoers with a variety of musical styles; including transcriptions of music for orchestra, wind band, choir, jazz and pop music, and the wealth of exciting original music written for brass band. The NCBB’s unique sound makes for a highly enjoyable concert experience.
