While students are in rehearsal, directors have the opportunity of attending reading sessions and clinics that focus on their areas of teaching expertise.

This year, we are pleased to announce that our guest conductor for the Honor Band will be Dr. Kenneth Steinsultz, Director of Bands at the University of Evansville. The conductor for the Honor Choir will be our very own Dr. Joel Schreuder.
