Honors Level Band Option Due 09/07/20 @ 11:59 PM

Email Mr. Marquez at if you would like to sign-up for Honors Level Band. The deadline is Monday, September 7th at 11:59 PM. Please see below for details:

The Honors student must:

Exhibit an advanced level of participation, skills, fundamentals and performance.

Attend two professional performances (in-person or virtual) or other performances approved in advance by the director each semester in the student’s respective Honors area. Documentation of these performances will include a program/print out and a minimum two page critique of each performance. The paper must be typed 12 point, Times New Roman font, double-spaced and must reflect the writing quality, content, and construction expected of an Honors student.Content must include a summary of the performance, historical references, analysis of the music performed, and a personal reflection on the performance and its influence on the listener.

Prepare all of the TMEA All Region audition materials during the fall. Students will be expected to perform in their entirety each etude/piece for a director. This may be done live, via google classroom, or zoom. This will be done prior to the actual TMEA audition and at the director’s discretion.

Audition for All Region during the fall. (This will be done virtually)

Attend one fall and one spring concert at your campus in the other music areas. EX: If I’m an orchestra honors student I would attend a band concert in the fall and a choir concert in the spring on my campus, or vice versa. This may be completed virtually if in-person concerts are not allowed. Should there be extenuating circumstances, directors may provide a suitable alternate assignment for credit. Proof of attendance is the only required completion component for credit. No summary or research paper is required. These concerts are in addition to the two professional performances listed above and may not be used to complete both.

Participate in the Richardson Chamber Music Festival as a solo performer and as part of an ensemble. If health regulations and RISD guidelines do not allow for in-person performances students will work with their director to develop an alternate form of completion.
