Colorado Honor Band Association is committed to reaching students a diverse array of communities and to celebrating the musical achievements of band programs throughout the Denver metropolitan area. Below are some examples of ways in which we engage with our community.
We perform yearly collaborative concerts with adult ensembles, including Denver Concert Band, Denver Brass, and Denver Municipal Band. These collaborations strengthen the camaraderie among local music groups, and they heighten our collective community impact by attracting wider audiences and by inspiring students to stay involved in the arts later in life.
Local Band Festivals
Our staff members are frequently on demand as guest conductors and adjudicators for band festivals. We have also helped to organize and staff the Littleton Elementary Band Festival and various Denver Public School honor bands festivals.
Our staff are also on demand as instrumental coaches for local school bands. We additionally have a mentorship program in which our music educators visit schools and offer one-on-one coaching and small-group instruction. These school collaborations strengthen local band programs by maximizing student progress. We mentor music teachers throughout Littleton Public Schools as well as Denver Public Schools including Hill Arts and Sciences Middle School.
