The 2020 WBA Honor Band is an elite ensemble showcasing exceptional students from across our WBA community. This group of individuals auditioned in September and were selected from a large pool of applicants. The performers put in hours of hard work on top of their regular music and academic responsibilities to perfect their part. Each student then recorded their performance which was brought together through the power of video editing to produce an outstanding final product.
"The only thing that was normal about this season was that nothing was normal. And because of that, WBA strived to provide as many creative and flexible performance opportunities for our students and ensembles as possible," said Rob van Loben Sels, WBA Executive Director. "We're so happy to have had a great turn out for our inaugural Honor Band and want to congratulate all of the students who auditioned for and participated in the ensemble as well as their directors for inspiring them to continue being active in music despite the pandemic."
This year's musical selection was titled "United Together" and was written by an all-star line up of composers including John Meehan, Scott Johnson, and Brian Dinkel. The 2020 WBA Honor Band performance was featured during the WBA season finale event on Saturday, November 21, but you can watch it now below!
