All-State Band

Eligiblity
Outstanding musicians, who are students of IBA members, in grades 9 -12 are eligible for the All-State Band.  The student must be a member in good standing of his/her school's band program throughout the school year. All participants are required to attend all rehearsals and the performance for the 56th Annual All-State Festival weekend (March 11, 12, and 13, 2016). Students must verify their availability.  We ask that students not audition if they cannot make a commitment to attend the entire All-State Festival weekend.

Conductors
Dr. James Ripley, Professor of Music and Director of Instrumental Activities at the Carthage College, will conduct the 2016 All-State Honor Band. Chief Musician Russell Gross, U.S. Navy Band retired, will conduct the 2016 All-State Band.  Both of these directors will make this an incredible experience for all involved.   Observing these rehearsals can be beneficial to everyone. Directors may earn professional growth points by observing All-State rehearsals.  Certificates will be available from the IBA President.
