Seventy-eight high school students representing 30 high schools from seven states will arrive at Lee University for Honor Band 2018 and will present a concert on Saturday, Nov. 17, at 1 p.m. in the Conn Center. 

“The Lee University Honor Band is always a wonderful weekend for the selected high school students,” said Lee’s Director of Instrumental Projects Winona Holsinger. “The ensemble is not as large as most honor bands, so the students feel as if they are making a contribution.” 

Dr. David Holsinger, director of the Lee University Wind Ensemble and acclaimed composer, will serve as the clinician for this year’s Honor Band. 

The Honor Band will perform pieces by Vasilj Agapkin, Howard Hanson, Dmitri Shostakovich, John Philip Sousa, Vaclav Nelhybel, and David Holsinger. 

The students were selected for the Honor Band based upon information submitted by the students, in addition to recommendations from their individual band directors.

“These students are a pleasure to have on campus,” said Winona Holsinger. “They play well, rehearse hard, and are great students. We always enjoy hosting this event.” 

Lee students will also perform during the weekend in the Honor Band Collage Concert on Friday, Nov. 16, at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center. The performance will feature Lee’s Symphonic Band, directed by Dr. Mark Bailey; the Jazz Ensemble, directed by Alan Wyatt; and the Wind Ensemble, directed by David Holsinger. 

Both concerts are free, non-ticketed, and open to the public. 

For more information about the Honor Band or the concerts, call 614-8263.

If you answered ‘one,’ you are as smart as our famous Little Johnny, who explained that with just one egg, the basket wasn’t empty any longer. Please understand that I do not write The Saturday Funnies; I just assemble what I find ... (click for more)
