2013 Festival Date: Saturday, April 27th
Chapman University is pleased to announce the Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music's 2013 Honor Band Festival to be held on Saturday, April 27th. Students selected for the Honor Band Festival will participate in a day-long event, which will offer pre-professional training led by Southern California’s preeminent wind and brass faculty. Chapman University is delighted to offer a full scholarship to this event to successful applicants.
Due to last year’s tremendous response, we are pleased to introduce a second ensemble: the Chapman Hall-Musco Conservatory Honor Band. Furthermore, we are very excited to announce that Teren Shaffer (Adjunct Professor at Chapman University’s Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music, Conductor of Irvine Classical Players Seraphim Winds, Music Director and Conductor of the Frederick Fennell Wind Ensemble at the Orange County School of the Arts, and Associate Conductor of the Orange County Youth Symphony Orchestra) will be joining Dr. Sherman to lead this new ensemble.
This year’s event will feature:
- Chapman Hall-Musco Conservatory Honor Wind Symphony, conducted by Dr. Paul Sherman
- Chapman Hall-Musco Conservatory Honor Band, conducted by Prof. Teren Shaffer
- Side-by-side rehearsals with Chapman Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music faculty including members of the Pacific Symphony, Los Angeles Opera, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra and A-list Hollywood Studio Players
- Master Classes for repertoire listed below

Out-of-area students must be accompanied by their director or an adult chaperone, and are requested to make their own housing arrangements at one of the local hotels as well as lunch and dinner arrangements. We invite you to enjoy a continental breakfast with Chapman faculty and students on the Oliphant Hall patio prior to the morning’s rehearsal and snacks will be provided throughout the day. The Chapman Hall-Musco Conservatory woodwind, brass, and percussion faculty are delighted to invite your students to apply for participation in this rewarding and intensive day of music-making.
We look forward to welcoming you and your outstanding students!
