Ever hear of Honors Band, Honors Orchestra, Honors Jazz Band (and Honors Choir, too) and wonder why can't my child do that?


PMEA Honors ensembles are available to 9-12 grade students and are audition only ensembles. Auditions are EARLY in the school year so if you think your child might want to audition, practice over the summer is a great idea.


Here's a link to the audition pieces (look at 2017-2018 column)
