We are excited to host the 2018 Kent State All-Star Band! Held on January 19 & 20, this honor band opportunity brings over 175 high school students to campus for a fun and intense two days of music-making. Band directors nominate students using the form below, and students are selected to participate in either the seventy-five member Honors Wind Symphony, or the 100-piece Honors Symphony Band. There is a $30 participation fee for accepted students. Optional accommodations for overnight student housing is available for an additional fee.
Our special guest conductor for the Honors Wind Symphony is Dr. Andy Collinsworth, Director of Bands at Sonoma State University in California. You can read more about Dr. Collinsworth HERE. The Honors Symphony Band will be conducted by our very own Dr. Jesse Leyva (Director of Bands) and Dr. John Franklin (Director of Athletic Bands)
