Gustavus Honor Band XXV

November 3–4, 2013

Now in its 25th year, the Gustavus Honor Band brings together outstanding high school musicians from Minnesota, Iowa, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin for two days of intensive performance experience, where the pursuit of musical excellence is the "guiding beacon." Both challenging and inspiring, Gustavus Honor Band affords promising musicians the opportunity to take their musical skills, knowledge, and insight to a new level. Students are nominated by their high-school music instructors via an on-line nomination form (see link in left margin). Approximately 95 of these nominees are selected to participate in the Gustavus Honor Band where they will work and learn with Gustavus music professors, and in only two days prepare and perform a memorable concert in Gustavus' magnificent Christ Chapel.

Please nominate your outstanding student musicians to participate in this excellent experience. You will find all the nomination and registration information, as well as many more details about the Gustavus Honor Band event and experience, experience, on this page in the left margin. I strongly encourage you to nominate your outstanding/deserving young musicians for this wonderful experience.

Nomination deadline is September 20, 2013. (Nomination forms may be received after this date, but space will be limited.)
