Musically advanced students from each of the schools Overture serves can be nominated by their band director to participate in Overture’s Honor Band. Honor Band offers these students a larger group band experience, the opportunity to play more challenging music, and an extended performance schedule.
Current teachers employed by Overture run the weekly, evening Honor Band rehearsals and present a concert in November and March. The Honor Band also goes on a performance tour in March to several of the schools that Overture serves.
Tour not only provides support for its participants, but also acts as a recruitment tool for students to join and stay in band. The students who participate in Honor Band gain self-confidence, achieve a higher level of musicianship, and attain musical leadership which they bring back and incorporate into their own school band.
