All-District Honor Band
Directors should encourage their talented high school students to apply for the 22nd Annual All-District Honor Band Festival. The structure is similar to the All-Region Honor Band Festival, with an online application and director recommendation used for member selection. The festival rehearsal will be Saturday, November 20 and the concert will be Sunday, November 21. The 2021 coordinator is Bryan Ames from Plymouth High School.

Students in grade nine through twelve 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. Students may submit online applications from August 21 through September 10.  When the student application window closes, directors will have one week to complete the recommendations for each student from his/her school.  Late entries will only be accepted with a $50.00 late fee, provided that the selection process has not begun at your site.


The $35 fee is paid on-site at the Saturday morning registration. Site hosts will charge an additional fee for lunch.
