High School Honor Band Festival
March 26, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Marshall University’s School of Music invites all high school band members and teachers to participate in a free online version of the Marshall University Honor Band. This year’s event will be online Friday, March 26, with the theme “Reconnecting.”
The virtual Marshall Honor Band event will feature special guest Robert W. Smith, renowned composer and educator. Participants will rehearse Smith’s new piece, “Portals,” in a live, virtual setting and attend sessions with Marshall band directors and master classes with Marshall faculty.
Students will then submit recordings of themselves playing “Portals.” The recordings will be edited together and premiere online in a special Marshall Bands concert that will be shared on the School of Music’s YouTube channel.
Registration for the Honor Band is free and can be accessed at www.marshall.edu/band/honorband.
The event is sponsored by the School of Music in the College of Arts and Media.
