Homecoming at Albion College is about reconnecting with old friends, sharing memories of the “good old days,” and most importantly – it’s about Alumni Band! Every year at Homecoming, past members of the British Eighth Marching Band return for another chance to step onto the football field and making music with the greatest marching band in the MIAA.
The High School Honor Band provides talented student musicians with the opportunity to rehearse and perform some of the best in wind band literature (both new and old) within a traditional symphonic band setting comprised of other high school students from across the state of Michigan.
The Albion College Piano Festival began in the fall of 2008. It was inspired by the memory of Vera Reed, an Albion resident and piano teacher who taught into her nineties and played even later in her life. While there is a competition element, and students can compete for cash prizes, it is our hope that students will find this festival to be more about performing, meeting and hearing other students, and taking lessons/master classes from Albion Faculty and guest artists. In other words, we view this festival as educational first and foremost.
