Virtual Honor Band Information


 We are very excited to offer our annual Middle School Honor Band in a new format this year. We hope that you and your students can use these resources as we navigate a virtual learning environment. This year’s honor band will consist of a series of videos that range from conversations with guest composers, breakout sessions, and masterclasses. We endeavored to make this year’s virtual event asynchronous, so you and your students can utilize these videos in class or online. These resources are free to use.
