Wind Band Events

Solo & Ensemble Contest

Solo and Ensemble is an adjudicated event sanctioned by the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activity Association in which students may play individually or in small groups. Soloists typically play with a piano accompanist. Ensembles usually number from 2 to 5 players, but sometimes are larger. Examples of ensembles that could perform at Solo and Ensemble Contest would be trumpet trio, flute quartet, woodwind quintet, brass quintet.

District Honor Bands

Each November students may audition for NBDA (Northeast Band Directors Association) Honor Bands.  From this region of schools students are selected to participate in three bands: Concert Band, Symphonic Band and
Wind Ensemble.  The Honor Bands meet for a clinic in January on a Friday and Saturday and culminating in a concert on Saturday afternoon. Each of the bands is directed by a guest conductor, usually from a college or university band program.
