All-Juniors Honor Band
Talented high school juniors!
All 11th-grade students who earned a position in an MMEA All-District Honor Band will receive automatic acceptance into the MU All-Juniors Honor Band. Furthermore, those who participated as sophomores in the 2019 All-State Band (or were Honorable Mention) will receive automatic acceptance and their participation fee will be waived. Directors, please also nominate additional qualified 11th-grade band members for this event. Students may nominate themselves as well.
This event provides 11th-grade band students the opportunity to experience the collegiate concert band environment through interaction with MU School of Music faculty and students. Juniors chosen for this Honor Band will receive instruction from both MU band and applied faculty members. The event will culminate in a joint concert with the MU Wind Ensemble at the historic Missouri Theatre in downtown Columbia. The $50 participation fee covers the cost for a commemorative t-shirt and meals while on campus. All selected students are expected to provide their own transportation to and from Columbia for the event. Selected students will have the option to request on-campus housing hosted by an MU music student.
University of Missouri Campus in Columbia, MO
February 16-17, 2020. Please see the Letter to Directors for a tentative schedule.
How to Nominate:
Students and Directors can apply online here. In addition, confirm that students can commit to participating fully in both days of the Honor Band before applying. Entry deadline is December 6th. MU band faculty will then make final selections based upon nominations and instrumentation needs, and you will be notified of your acceptance status by December 17th.
