National Wind Band Honors Results

NATIONAL WINNER of the Mark of Excellence
National Wind Band Honors

The Arbor Creek Honors Band has been named a NATIONAL WINNER by the National Wind Band Project for the 2nd consecutive year! In this project, the top quarter are selected as National Winners and the second quarter are Commended Winners. This list will be published in music & national conventions during the 2015-2016 school year.

Many of the finest bands in the nation entered in the competition with 229 entries submitted through the various classifications from 36 states. The contest originated in Texas and because of the quality of bands in our state, still has a strong Texas domination.

Honors Band submitted J.S. Jig by Karrick & Simple Gifts by Ticheli. We are tremendously proud of all students in the program for the sustained tradition of excellence we have had in receiving this honor.

Congratulations to all!

The competition also honored the most outstanding soloist from the entire contest:
