Honor Band Festivals 2021

With the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and surrounding community at the forefront of all our decisions, we are carefully debating our workshops and performance season. With the continued threat of COVID-19, it is unclear if any workshops, concerts, recitals or other events can be safely held with guests in attendance in-house this semester.  We will update our event offerings on this page when it is safe to perform live or when we plan to stream our music events.

Middle School Festival: February 19-20, 2021

This two day festival begins with chair placement and a rehearsal Friday night. The participants will have an opportunity to hear UM’s chamber ensembles Saturday afternoon. A complete schedule of events will be listed soon, below.

Students must be recommended by a band instructor in order to register for the UM Honor Band. We reserve the right to invite a limited number to fill the positions available. Upper class students will have first preference, but we encourage young talented students to apply as well.
