The Ontario Band Association is proud to announce the second year of the
Laurier/OBA Elementary Honour Band! In partnership with the Laurier
Centre for Music in the Community we hope to make this event a yearly
endeavour that will reach over 100 hundred kids each year! This
ensemble will draw students from both the Waterloo and Upper Grand
school boards. The band will run on Saturday, April 29th – Sunday,
April 30th, 2017.
Students from Grade 7 & 8 can be recommended by their teachers to be in the ensemble. Recommendations must be completed by March 10th, 2017. The participation fee for the weekend will be $50.
Honour Bands are a great chance for students to meet other like-minded individuals and work towards a common goal. The Laurier/OBA Honour Band is an educational concert band that will develop not only the participants' musical capabilities, but also their self confidence, team work and spirit, which they will bring home and to school to positively affect everyone who is around them.
