Festivals and Honors Ensembles | Print |

As a member of HSMA, students have the opportunity to participate in many different festivals and honors groups. Here is a brief introduction to these opportunities, with more information available through links on the HSMA website.

Large Ensemble Festivals

Large ensemble festivals are for bands, orchestras and choirs. Because HSMA is a member of the YAC, HSMA large ensembles are able to participate in the YAC BOC (band, orchestra, choir) festival and receive ratings.

Solo and Small Ensemble Festivals

Solo and Ensemble festivals are for single performers and ensembles (usually as many as eight members). Solo and small ensemble festivals in which HSMA students may participate include YAC S&E (string, wind and percussion), and HSMA Elementary S&E (sponsored by HSMA).

Honors Ensembles

HSMA students are eligible to be considered for a number of different honors ensembles. These include the YAC Honors Recital and Honors Orchestra and various honors orchestras/bands/choirs at local Universities.
