Middle School Honor Band

Please visit our page for information about our Virtual Honor Band!

 

Marshall University is proud to announce the Middle School Honor Band Festival will be held at the Marshall University on November 22, 2019. The Middle School Honor Band Festival is an event developed for the purpose of recognizing the achievements of exceptional middle school musicians. The festival includes rehearsal/final concert preparations with quality clinicians from successful public school teachers. This year, we will seat three middle school honor bands at the festival. The Festival Honor Bands will be made up of a Wind Symphony, Symphonic Band, and a band made up of equal strength musicians. Students will be placed alternately in the festival honor bands. Our staff feels that this provides the best experience for all participants.

Clinicians

TBD

The cost of attending the MU Festival Band is $20.00 per student. Cash, credit cards, and checks are accepted.  You may enclose one check or several, made out to “Kappa Kappa Psi”. Please note a 3% processing fee will be placed on all credit card charges.

Meals

All campus dining facilities at the Memorial Student Center and Harless Dining Hall will be open. Students may also go off-campus to eat. There are several restaurants and fast food places within easy walking distance from campus. We will not offer lunch on Friday through our music department as we have in the past.
