Intercollegiate Honor Band Weekend

Intercollegiate Honor Band Weekend

(January 2, 2017) McNeese State University will host the 2017 Louisiana Intercollegiate Honor Band Jan. 13-15. Eighty college musicians representing nine universities from across the state - including 17 McNeese students - will converge on the McNeese campus for this event.

After rehearsals Friday and Saturday, the honor band will perform in a free concert at 2 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 15, in Tritico Theatre in the Shearman Fine Arts Annex. The group will be conducted by Richard Clary, director of wind ensemble studies at Florida State University.

University band directors nominate the most outstanding students from their respective programs who apply for the honor band, according to Jay Jacobs, McNeese director of bands. “The band is selected from these nominations.”
