Honor Band and Choir Festival
January 9th & 10th, 2015

All submissions are due November 14th, 2014

We invite all high school students and directors to participate in this year's exciting High School Honor Band and Choir Festival, held on the beautiful campus of Southern Utah University. We are excited to announce the addition of choirs to our annual high school honor band event. Please note the earlier date for this year's festival.

Students will be selected by audition to rehearse and perform outstanding choir and wind band literature under the direction of Dr. Baker, Director of Choral Activities, Dr. Adam Lambert, our new Director of Bands at Southern Utah University, and Dr. Tom Herb, Director of Music Education and Jazz.

Students selected for the SUU High School Band and Choir Festival participate in two days of rehearsals and activities culminating in a concert at the end of the second day at the beautiful Heritage Center Theater in Cedar City, Utah.

Band materials on the audition page include a complete score for use during a full band rehearsal to facilitate a collective effort in your preparation. Separate parts are available for each instrument and, in some cases, a lower register option is provided. Choir audition materials include mp3 recordings to facilitate student rehearsals.

Directors are encouraged to print the 2015 application and audition materials from our web site (available soon) and send recorded applicant performances to Donna McIntyre at the address listed in the instructions. (The format for recorded performances is also explained on our site)

The audition fee is $20.00 per applicant (nonrefundable).

Come be a part of a great tradition in playing great music and having lots of fun at SUU! For further questions contact Dr. Lambert at
