Instead of having our regular UA Honor Band, we are excited to offer all students and directors a FREE virtual event designed to get everyone excited to get back into the band room again!
There are no auditions and no costs. You and your students simply head over to the web site to register: https://honorband.music.arizona.edu/.
After a brief introductory session, students and directors will get to choose from a menu of sessions, all designed to be fairly brief, fun, and similar to TED-talk style presentations!
Then, while students are in Performance Classes with the Fred Fox School of Music Faculty, the directors will join UA Director of Bands Dr. Chad Nicholson for a special session with the legendary Ray E. Cramer! In addition to his 36 years at Indiana University, Mr. Cramer has been the president of CBDNA, President of The Midwest Clinic Board of Directors, and is in the National Band Association’s Hall of Fame.
Saturday, Feb. 20, from 1:00PM-3:40PM MST
1:00-1:30 Introductory Session with Dr. Chad Nicholson and the UA Band Staff
1:30-2:00 Elective Session #1

On behalf of Dr. Nicholson and the entire team in the University of Arizona Bands, we hope to “see” you on February 20.
