2022 MSU Honor Band Clinic Results

Dear Honor Band Participants:

The results of the 2022 MSU Honor Band Clinic auditions are listed here. Congratulations to everyone who made it!  We ask that you review them closely to determine your status in our Honor Band program.  As we have stated, the selections were based on the recorded auditions that were submitted in November.  Students in the Wind Symphony are listed according to their chair placement.  All other participants are listed alphabetically and will receive their chair placement at the clinic.  If your name is not listed, we thank you for your audition, but we are unable to offer you a position at this time. 

THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT:  If you have been selected, you are required to respond to http://tinyurl.com/msuhbc and let us know if you will be able to participate in the Honor Band Clinic.  We must receive your responses by 5:00 pm on Monday, January 10.   If we have not heard from you by then, we will remove your name from the list of participants.
