Providing an opportunity for the great emerging talent in Florida’s high school instrumental music programs through a selective and inspiring ensemble experience, the UCF Bands introduce the Knights Rising High School Honor Band.
- Nominations: Directors are encouraged to nominate students that are ready for an honors ensemble experience, whether those on the verge of distinguishing themselves through all-county selection or those who may already have done so.
- Interactive Schedule: Invigorating rehearsals under a distinguished guest conductor and sectional master classes with UCF music faculty & students.
- Schedule for the weekend is constructed parallel to the UCF Conductors Symposium, providing directors broad opportunity for professional development.
- Directors who have students in the honor band can attend the UCF Conductors Symposium under Participant status, free of charge! Directors will be provided a coupon code to enter on the symposium payment page.
