Welcome to the 2017 UT High School Honor Band!
The University of Toledo will host its 9th Annual High School Honor Band this February
17-19, 2017. For eight years, this unique event has attracted a large number of area
band students who spend a weekend not only rehearsing and performing a variety of
music, but learning about and applying practical concepts of musicianship.
There is NO COST and NO AUDITION for participation. The goal of the event is to have an enjoyable weekend by making music, not drilling technique. Special emphasis is placed on the concepts of phrasing, balance, blend, tone and tuning. Every high school musician can/will benefit from participating in this event.
Members of the UT Wind Ensemble sit-in with the students for both rehearsals and performance. In addition, students have the opportunity to audition for UT Music Scholarships and Program Admission while on campus. This year, the Sunday concert performance will include a performance by the UT Wind Ensemble.
Registration for this event is through the high school directors. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Directors are asked to submit
- via email - the names, instrument, ability level, and contact information of interested
