Lexington Two Honor Band Clinic

The Honor Band Clinic, in its fifth year,  includes 39 middle schoolers and 49 high schoolers Middle school musicians were selected based on auditions hosted earlier this year, while high school musicians were selected based on the director’s recommendation. 

Students in the middle and high school honor bands will have the opportunity to work with two master educators, Edna Grace and Alyssa Haley. While working with clinicians,  students only have 10 hours to prepare for the concert, set for April 12, said Hunter Reese, band director at Busbee Creative Arts Academy who works with the Honor Band Clinic program.
