Samford Honor Band Festival

January 10-12, 2019

Participant Announcement Dec. 10. 

The Thirteenth Annual Honor Band Festival will be held on the campus of Samford University Jan. 10-12, 2019.  We hope you will choose to join us for this exciting and educational event for middle school and high school band students. One of the great benefits of our honor band event is the scholarship opportunity for potential Samford University students. Any high school senior that is selected to participate in the honor band is eligible for the scholarship based on their audition scores.

We will continue to have two middle school and two high school concert bands. As in previous years, our event will end with a concert by our middle and high school bands on Saturday afternoon at 2:30 p.m. 

Selection of Participants 

Each participant will be selected based on their application and recommendation by their current band director. Our music faculty at Samford will review all applicants and determine if the student will be selected. The selected students will be posted on our honor band website on December 10. Payment will be due AFTER students have been notified of acceptance.


We do not provide housing for honor band. We will provide lunch for the students and dinner on Friday, January 11. If you are selected, there will be an $80 registration fee to participate. Each participant will receive a 2019 Samford University Honor Band T-shirt and a medal.
