For 27 years, the Ann Arbor Concert Band and AA Community Foundation sponsor a scholarship award competition for high school wind and percussion musicians.  This is open to high school musicians in Michigan, and we hope you pass the attached information along to high school musicians, music teachers or groups and encourage students to audition.  The winning student will receive $1000 scholarship plus the honor of playing his/her solo at the May 6, 2018 concert of the Ann Arbor Concert Band. Attached are the competition rules, a flyer as a pdf and jpeg and the audition form as a pdf and Word document. The audition form can be completed online at our website.

There’s a lot to be curious about as a music student. In fact, almost every musical concept can be taught from multiple angles including performance, theory, and history. We know the most rewarding music classes I took at college frequently shifted between these different musical perspectives. As the Northville High School Band's members contemplate what to do with their love for music, they should hear about degree programs that teach music from several approaches.

Our team at TheBestColleges.org is here to help with our new guide to the most innovative college music programs. We’ve highlighted programs that shape their curriculums according to modern trends in music and technology, and also include scholarly music subjects like music history and jazz studies.
