Hartwick College Honor Band

The Music Department at Hartwick College is pleased to announce the 3rd Annual Hartwick College Honor Band, to be held at the College’s Anderson Center for the Arts on Saturday, October 26, 2019.

This event brings high school students from around the region together for an intensive day of music-making on our beautiful campus with our faculty and students. The day culminates in an evening concert alongside the Hartwick Wind Ensemble and faculty piano soloist Professor Fideliz Campbell.
Players also work with a distinguished guest conductor.  This year’s guest is Jasmine Britt, director of the Kings County Concert Band.
Any experienced band students in grades 9-12 are invited to apply.  Applicants will be notified of their status by Friday, October 4. A $25 registration fee will cover lunch, dinner, and a t-shirt.
