MANITOBA HONOUR CONCERT BANDS

The MBA's annual provincial honour band program (established 1976) provides an opportunity for outstanding junior, intermediate and senior instrumentalists to gather for an enriching and inspiring three-day concert band experience. Manitoba students are eligible to audition for Manitoba's Honour Concert Bands. Students are selected on the strength of their recorded audition which includes several scales and two etudes. 

If you have questions please contact our Honour Band Administrator, Cheryl Ferguson.
