Last year's Honor band was conducted by Damien Crutcher, founder and CEO of Crescendo Detroit. The band met for two major rehearsals and performed in concert that same evening with the Albion College Symphonic Wind Ensemble.

  1. A submitted application, (Application will be available mid-November) and
  2. Their director's recomendation. (Directors will be notified via email when a student from their school has applied)
