All-Senior Honor Band Coming to SWOSU This Saturday


Southwestern Oklahoma State University will host the 34th annual All Senior Honor Band event this Saturday, November 19.

Seniors from across the state of Oklahoma and parts of Texas participate in the event. Members are selected by their local band directors to audition for chair placement in the honor band. Nearly 80 students will be participating.

Students will audition in the morning followed by three rehearsals. To highlight the day, the students will perform a free concert open to the public in the SWOSU Fine Arts Center at 6 p.m. Guest conductor this year is Randy Brooks, director of bands at Elk City Public Schools.
