The 12th Annual Auburn University Middle School Symphonic Honor Band Festival will be held at Auburn University February 2 - 4, 2023.

Students from across the Southeast will be selected to participate in the festival based on submitted applications and director recommendations. We will seat one band, and chair placement will be determined by an on-site audition.

During the course of the festival, students will work with a renowned conductor and composer, and perform both large and small ensemble music.  The festival will culminate with a finale concert on Saturday, February 4.

Auburn University is not able to provide housing and meals for this event. Participants will need to travel with a parent or chaperone and be transported to and from rehearsals at Goodwin Music Building, and to concerts at the Gogue Performing Arts Center. There are options for meals both on campus and downtown, and a list of hotels will be provided when the roster is posted.  

A $10 application fee is required. After being selected, each musician will need to pay a non-refundable $65 participation fee by the deadline in the acceptance letter. Participants will receive a long-sleeved festival t-shirt during check-in, and a medal after the festival has concluded.
