Music Honors

The student who is accepted into an honor band or choir benefits in several ways. First, there are the improved musicianship skills that are the result of preparing the audition music. (The demands of the audition materials are much greater than those of the daily rehearsal and practice routine.) Second, each student is a part of a larger ensemble which is comprised of some of the finest young musicians to be found anywhere in the world. This allows them to perform music that is of a higher difficulty level than that which is usually performed in their home schools. Finally, the students in these ensembles receive direction from conductors who are not only excellent musicians, but also inspiring leaders. Students are able to take their experiences in these elite ensembles back to their own school music programs. For all of the hard work - audition preparation, rehearsal, the performance - the result is a week of musical experiences that will last a lifetime!
