Course Overview >
In January, approximately fifteen of our most advanced students will travel to Fairfield where they will audition for membership in the prestigious SEIBA District Honor Band. The honor band is made up of students from all over Southeast Iowa.
Students who are accepted into the honor band gather at West High later in January to prepare and present a concert.
The top eighth grade students from the honor band also earn highly coveted positions in the state-level IBA Middle School Honor Band which takes place in Des Moines in the spring.
Each spring, selected students are nominated for participation in the Kennedy Five Seasons Honor Band. Students are chosen for the band based on their past accomplishments and the recommendation that they recieve from their director.
On the day of the event, members of the Five Seasons honor band travel to Kennedy High School in Cedar Rapids where they gather to prepare and present an evening concert.
