All-District Honor Band
Directors should encourage their talented high school students to apply for the 16th Annual All-District Honor Band Festival November 21 & 22, 2015. The structure is similar to the All-Region Honor Band Festival, with a paper application and director recommendation used for member selection. Bryan Munoz, from East Noble High School, 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.
Application & Director Summary Form
Students in grade nine through twelve, who have not previously participated in either All-State Band, are eligible to apply.  Ninth grade students may apply for either All-Region or All-District but not both. All schools submitting applications will have at least one student selected for the organization. The postmark deadline for applications is September 11th.  Late entries will only be accepted with a $50.00 late fee, provided that the selection process has not begun for your site.

Registration

Each student selected for participation will pay a $35.00 registration fee on Saturday morning November 21.  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!
