Registration Dates

Please communicate the dates of the Festival with your students and discuss the importance of attending all scheduled honor band rehearsals, master classes, sectionals, the Friday night banquet, and all Festival performances prior to recommending them for participation.

  • Friday, November 17, 2017: Recommendations received by this date are insured the highest level of consideration for participation in the honor bands. Recommendations received after this date will still be considered on a space-available basis or at the discretion of the Festival Director up until the start of the festival.
  • Sunday, December 31, 2017 or sooner: Initial notification sent to high school band directors with posting of students selected for participation. If a director does not receive notification by this date, please e-mail the Festival Director.

    • Friday, February 9, 2017: Late Registration Deadline. $40 per student if received by this date.
  • Please note that students may be subject to being dropped from the Festival if a registration fee has not been received by the Late Registration date. An email notification will be sent out to the recommending director prior to any action being taken. Thank you for submitting on-time payments.
    • Monday, February 12, 2017: Cancellation Deadline. All cancellations receive starting on this date are subject to a $20.00 late cancellation fee.
    • Thursday, February 22, 2017: On-site registration. $45 per student.

Special date to note: Due to financial losses associated with late cancellations, we will be assessing a late cancellation fee of $20.00 for each student who cancels within 10 days of the 1st day of the Festival. Directors should make very clear to their students the importance of following through with their commitment to participate in the Festival prior to recommending names for participation. Thank you for your understanding. Please communicate the dates of the Festival with your students and discuss the importance of attending all scheduled honor band rehearsals, master classes, sectionals, the Friday night banquet, and all Festival performances prior to recommending them for participation.
