The ABA Wind Symphony

THE DEADLINE FOR RECOMMENDATIONS was Friday, May 13, 2016.
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.
