2018 UT Honor Band Weekend is February 23-25

2020 High School Honor Band - February 21-23

Concert - Feb. 23 at 3 P.M. DOERMANN THEATER, UNIVERSITY HALL

The University of Toledo will host its 12th Annual High School Honor Band in February.  This unique event attracts 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. 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.

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 students.  More information available on the UT Bands web page.
