Coastal Honor Band & SCHOLARSHIP FESTIVAL
The sixth annual Coastal Honor Band & Scholarship Fesitval will be held on the CCU campus on December 5-7, 2013. Band members in grades 8-12 (all participants must have at least two years of experience) are invited to campus for a three day event with guest clinicians and conductors (see bios below). Students will be placed, by audition, into the Festival Wind Ensemble or the Coastal Honor Band. Interested seniors will have the opportunity to audition for scholarships, with awards made at the final concert of the weekend.
SELECTION OF PARTICIPANTS: Approximately 150 students will be selected by a committee of University Bands faculty. Information included on the student application (resume) and the band director's recommendation will be the primary criteria used to select participants. In most cases, the student resumes and band director recommendations are the sole source of information from which the committee will make the final selections. Students and directors are encouraged to complete the resume and recommendation in detail and be sure that the required information is submitted prior to the close of registration. Each director who submits a nomination is guaranteed that at least one student from each school will be selected to participate in the Festival. .
HOUSING/MEALS/FEES: For the 2013 Coastal Honor Band & Scholarship Festival, students chosen to participate will be required to pay a participation fee of $xx, which includes admission to all clinics, concerts and includes a Festival Participation Pin. This participation fee will be due AFTER students have been notified that they have been selected to participate in the Festival. The Coastal Honor Band & Scholarship Festival provides a housing/meal plan for interested students for a nominal fee.
ACADEMIC TESTING: Students should not schedule to take the SAT or ACT on Saturday December 7, 2013 as this will conflict with the final day of the Coastal Honor Band & Scholarship Festival.
