The 2022 In-Service Workshop will see the start of a new ensemble, the KMEA 12A Honor Band. This new group is not an “All-State” ensemble as it is not an auditioned group. To be eligible, students from 1A-2A high schools must complete an audition for their KMEA district honor band. Directors will submit nominations to KMEA, and the final roster will be selected from that list. Students will have an opportunity to be in a state-level festival ensemble with an outstanding clinician, composer Ed Huckeby. The 2022 12A Honor Band will rehearse and perform as part of the 2022 In-Service Workshop. The concert will be on Saturday, Feb. 26 at 1:00 PM in the Century II Concert Hall.
