High school students who are brass, woodwind, and percussion players and interested in Wind Ensemble are invited to join Honor Band Day on Feb. 28-29, 2020 at Concordia University Ann Arbor.

Registration for the event begins at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, February 28 with an alternate registration at 3:30 p.m. for students joining at the conclusion of classes at local public schools. Students will have master classes with Concordia’s music faculty, and will present a short concert on Saturday, February 29 at 4:00 p.m.

The Honor Band Day allows talented brass, woodwind, and percussion players high school band students to learn and perform music side by side with college students enrolled in the Wind Ensemble, and provides a chance for students to experience music-making in the environment of a small private liberal arts university.


Students needing to travel more than 30 miles to attend will have the option to spend the night in the residence halls with current CUAA students. There will be a $25 registration fee for students. Each participating student will receive a t-shirt.
