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 High School Honor Band takes place on the campus of Albion College. It begins at 8:00 a.m. with registration/check-in and light breakfast and concludes after our 7:00 p.m. evening concert. Last year's Honor band was conducted by Damien Crutcher, founder and CEO of Crescendo Detroit. The band met for two major rehearsals and performed in concert that same evening with the Albion College Symphonic Wind Ensemble.

Deadline for application and audition materials is TBD.
