The KBA ML Honor Band is an opportunity for students to participate in a top-level ensemble under the direction of a prominent conductor.

* 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 75 students, so please understand that not every student nominated may 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 summer convention has to offer.
