Honor Bands

  • All-District and All-State Honor Bands are bands that require an audition and acceptance to attend. All-District Band auditions are held at Tuscola High School, NC. High School auditions are held on a Thursday night while Middle School is held the following Saturday, weather permitting. The exact dates change from year to year and information will be given out by the band directors of each school. All-District Audition dates are typically in mid-January with the honor band clinic occurring the following month.

    Achieving a high enough score will result in a student being eligible to participate in the honor band. If enough students from a combination of both middle school and high school participants, then the trip will result in an overnight stay. Typically, the Western District All-District Honor Band is held at Western Carolina University over the course of a few days. More information can be provided by the directors when the time arises.

    The All-State Honor Band is only eligible for students who achieve top ranks in each section of the ensemble. Auditions are typically held after the All-District Band event at the beginning of March.
