The Middle School Honors Band program is hosted by EKU each fall in order to enhance the music experience for the more advanced Middle School band student. Students must be recommended by their band or orchestra directors in order to be elible for the Honors Band. 

NO LATER THAN MONDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2022, Band directors should complete the ONLINE Participation Nomination Form to nominate their students.


General Information

Procedures for submitting students for Honors Band membership:

  1. Students must be recommended by their band or orchestra directors.
  2. Directors should complete the ONLINE Participation Nomination Form.
  3. Band or orchestra directors may NOT recommend more than 30% of your middle school band enrollment.
  4. Student's applications will be reviewed on first-received, first-served basis.

Every effort will be made to include students from every school that applies prior to the deadline. We cannot guarantee that all students submitted will be accepted.

Each participating student will be assessed a clinic fee of $25.00 to cover the expenses of the day's activities. This fee will be due at the clinic registration. Meals will be available at the student's expense on the campus or at our many local restaurants.

For students and directors coming from distances too great to come on Saturday morning, we recommend making arrangements with a local motel. Directors and or parent/guardians are responsibile for travel and securing lodging. Richmond has several hotels in the area. In some cases, the hotel will be able to honor a tax-exempt certificate from your school. Directors must bring their tax-exempt form from their Board of Education to be exempt from the State Tax, but will still be responsible for the Hotel Tax. We encourage you to ask if the hotel will offer a special rate for students and supervisors attending the EKU Honors Band event when making your reservation.
