Middle Level HonorFest

Middle Level HonorFest

September 28, 2019

At Middle Level HonorFest, advanced middle school band and choir musicians spend a day working with a master clinician in a higher education setting. This one-day festival is designed to give your best students an opportunity to perform in an honor band environment early in the school year. 
Middle Level HonorFest is a great way for your students to meet and make music with advanced musicians from other schools. Students will perform quality literature, practice in small group sectionals, and spend the day on a college campus.
The HonorFest bands and choirs will rehearse during the morning and afternoon, and conclude with a performance in the early evening. The HonorFest concert is free of charge and open to the public.
Participation in Middle Level Honor Fest is determined by director nominations. Directors may nominate up to eight students grades 6-8; selection is based upon your nomination as well as instrumentation.
Completed nomination forms must be received no later than Friday, September 13, 2019. Participating students and directors will be notified of final accepted rosters by Tuesday, September 19, 2019.
There is no cost to nominate students, but a $40.00 per-accepted-student participation fee is due no later than Friday, September 27, 2019.
