Honor Band and Choir Festival
January 8th & 9th, 2016

All submissions are due November 20th, 2015

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 later 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. Steve Meredith, Director of Choral Activities, and Dr. Adam Lambert, Director of Bands at Southern Utah University.

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 audition materials from our web site (available soon) and send recorded applicant performances to Donna McIntyre at 315 West University Boulevard, Cedar City Ut. 84720. (The format for recorded performances is also explained on our site)

The audition fee is $25.00 per applicant (refundable if applicant is not accepted).

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 adamlambert@suu.edu
