Honor Band Opportunities

Honor bands not only give students reasons to practice and work on something more in depth than the school concert band setting, they also allow students to meet other talented students from around the state, work with renowned conductors from the area, and earn lettering points for a letter at the end of the year. Email Mr. Vuu or Mr. Snyder if you have any questions about audition processes or materials.
