Honor Band Audition materials are now available.  Due to the uncertainty of school operations this year, we are not posting audition or event dates and particulars until this fall.  Please share this info with students as you distribute materials to them.  We will update members on a timeline in mid-September and thank you all in advance for your understanding as we try to provide a safe experience for students.

Students in grades 6-10 must be involved in their MN school band program during the year of audition and have MN directors who are current, paid members of MBDA by November 1, 2020. Students are selected based on ability, but each school is limited to a maximum of eight students. It is the intent of MBDA to represent as many schools across Minnesota as possible each year.

All student auditions must be submitted via mp3 recording.
