Director’s Nominations

Current KBA members are invited to submit 2018 KBA Middle Level Band Nominations

Nomination deadline is April 18, 2018, 11:59:59 PM (CST)

  • Directors must be current members of KBA and in attendance at the convention in order to have students participate in the KBA Middle Level Honor Band.
  • The band selection process will come from director nominations throughout the state.
  • Nominations are submitted on the KBA website.
  • Students currently in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade will be accepted.
  • Please include specific comments regarding each submission. (These comments will aid in the selection of students.)
  • All entries are to be submitted no later than the posted deadline.

* Directors – It is essential to share this pertinent information with the students you are nominating. Students and families must be aware of the date of this event, and willing to make the commitment to participate if selected.

The band size is limited to approximately 90 students, so please understand that not every student nominated will be selected. We must strive to have a balanced instrumentation in this band. The selection of students/instrumentation will be posted on the KBA website the first part of May.

Each selected student will incur a participation fee of $40. The fee includes lunch for the students. In addition, all directors who have students participating in the honor band must be registered for the KBA convention, on site and available throughout the duration of your student’s visit in the event assistance is necessary. Districts who do not have directors on site to assist and supervise students will be charged $100.

This unique summertime event allows you, the director, an opportunity to reward student progress and achievement, as well as providing your students a wonderful honor band experience with a nationally recognized conductor/clinician! Come share in the wealth of presentations, hands on learning sessions, concerts, and motivating, musical education opportunities the KBA convention will offer.

Schedule will be posted soon.
