The Music Department at Hartwick College is pleased to announce the 4th Annual Hartwick College Honor Band, to be held virtually on Saturday, October 24, 2020.

Students will work with conductor Andy Pease and the rest of Hartwick’s distinguished instrumental music faculty, as well as the members of the Hartwick Wind Ensemble.
We will also feature live Q&A sessions with composers John Mackey and Kelijah Dunton. The day will culminate as students submit their video recorded performances of Mackey’s “Foundry” and Dunton’s “Stillwater,” which will be combined into one enormous virtual performance.
Any experienced band students in grades 9-12 are invited to apply. Participation is FREE of charge.
