Overview

After a two year hiatus, the Ontario Band Association, in partnership with Western University, is once again thrilled to present the annual Intermediate Honour Band for students in Grades 9, 10, and 11 from across the province. The 2022 honour band will take place at the Don Wright Faculty of Music on Western’s campus in London ON on October 14th and 15th.

This two-day event is a phenomenal opportunity for musical enrichment and provides memories that will last a lifetime.

Participation

Acceptance into the ensemble is through teacher recommendation, not audition. Teachers will be provided with registration and payment links to share with their students once accepted.

While the Intermediate Honour Band has catered to students from grades eight to ten in the past, we have adjusted our programming to meet the needs of students who missed out on this experience due to pandemic related interruptions. The 2022 band will therefore be open to students in grades nine, ten and eleven as a result.

Please note that there are some playing requirements that will be enforced for this year's recommendations:

  • Students must have at least a year of playing experience on their instrument.
  • Students should be able to comfortably play the following scales ascending and descending:
    - Concert F Major
    - Concert B-flat Major
    - Concert E-flat Major
  • If percussionists do not have access to mallet percussion instruments, the scale requirements will be waived.

Cost

$65 per student
