Honour Band.png

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. 

 

Please Note: Complete attendance at all rehearsals and the performance is mandatory for acceptance into the MBA Honour Bands. Please check your calendar before submitting your audition. 

Participants whose principal residence is 200km or further from Winnipeg may choose to participate in the Sectional Rehearsal via Zoom. All other rehearsals and concert must be attended in person.

Travel subsidies are available for participants whose principal residence is 200km or further from Winnipeg.

If you have questions please contact the MBA Office: executivedirector@mbband.org
