Archdiocesan Honor Band – 2020
Guest Conductor is : Michael J. Norton
Honor Band chairperson is Dannah Addalli
Although things may change as usual, here are our tentative plans for the Archdiocesan Elementary Festival, Jazz and Honor Bands for the next school year.
Unlike the choral and string groups who never had a rehearsal or concert, the Honor Band had successful rehearsal instruction for many weeks and did hold their annual concert as did Jazz Band. Because of this, we will revert to the usual band and jazz audition for only students in next year’s 6, 7, or 8th grade. Their audition solos and other info is also on our web page. www.aemusic.org. Their names must be submitted by the school’s band director to audition. This audition will also be held in November if all goes well. For band auditions, scales do not have to be memorized.
Next year ‘s 9th graders have the opportunity to audition for the HS All Catholic Band and All Catholic Jazz Band. Their high school band director can give them that information at the high school they will attend.
Concert next year will be on Thursday February 11, 2021 at Archbishop Wood HS.
IMPORTANT = All music folders of the Honor Band from this past season MUST be returned back to the school’s band director before June 10 or mailed to:
