Alberta Band Association

The ABA Wind Symphony

October 20 – 22, 2016 | Banff (at The Banff Centre)


The Alberta Band Association is pleased to announce some considerable changes to a cornerstone program of the ABA, the Alberta Honour Band. These changes come after discussions with and feedback from members of the ABA.

  • The name of the ensemble is now the Alberta Band Association Wind Symphony.
  • Auditions are longer required. Instead, we accepted students based upon teacher recommendation, a system that we have been using for years with great success in our Junior High Honour Band program.
  • All high school students, including those currently in Grade 12, were eligible to participate.
