All-District Honor Band
Directors should encourage their talented high school students to apply for the 17th Annual All-District Honor Band Festival November 19 & 20, 2016. The structure is similar to the All-Region Honor Band Festival, with an online application and director recommendation used for member selection. John Cook, from Lawrence Central High School in Indianapolis, is the coordinator. All participants are required to attend all rehearsals and the performance for the All-District Festival weekend. Students must verify their availability. We ask that students not apply if they cannot make a commitment to attend the entire All-District Festival weekend.
Applications
The entry deadline has passed.

Director Evaluation/Recommendation Instructions

Registration

Each student selected for participation will pay a $35.00 registration fee on Saturday morning November 19.  All students selected for the band will receive a commemorative patch.  Each site will also have lunch available for a nominal fee.  Directors should contact the site host to volunteer to help with selections and sectionals.

Preparation

Directors should also make sure each of their selected students is prepared to play all the music sent to them.  Saturday morning is not the time to work on notes and rhythms.  Please prepare your students!
