Registration for the combined Middle School and High School Honor Band is now open! This year’s virtual event is completely free of charge so be sure to take advantage of this amazing opportunity. The event will take place February 1-4 from 5:00-7:30 PM (Central Time) each day.

Sessions for this year’s event include:

  • Masterclasses with UA Applied Faculty – highly specialized instruction on your instrument in a group setting
  • Improvisation session with Kevin Woosley – tips and tricks for learning to improvise. Improv isn’t just for jazz! Anyone can *and should* do it (check him out on TikTok: kevinwoosleypiano)
  • School of Music and University info session – What we offer and what you can expect to be able to learn and do here at UA (plus resources for applying and auditioning when you’re ready for college)
  • Audition Preparation – the “do”s and “don’t”s regarding how to get ready for and not be nervous in your next audition (whether it’s chair placement, All-State, or auditioning for college admission!)
  • Highlight videos of Concert Ensembles, the Million Dollar Band, and our yearly Spectrum concerts
