2023 Audition Music

We invite all high school students and directors to participate in this year's exciting High School Honor Band Festival, held on the beautiful campus of Southern Utah University.

Students will be selected by audition to rehearse and perform outstanding wind band literature under the direction of Dr. Adam Lambert, Director of Bands at Southern Utah University.

Students selected for the SUU High School Band participate in two days of rehearsals and activities culminating in a concert at the end of the second day at the beautiful Heritage Center Theater in Cedar City, Utah.

Band materials on the audition page include a complete score for use during a full band rehearsal to facilitate a collective effort in your preparation. Separate parts are available for each instrument and, in some cases, a lower register option is provided.

Directors are encouraged to print the audition materials from our web site. Submission options include sending a link to a private YouTube channel (preferred) or send recorded performances to in MP3 format. You may also send a CD recording of auditions to: Haleigh Vance, Music Department, Southern Utah University, 351 West University Boulevard, Cedar City Utah, 84720.

The registration fee is $30.00 per applicant upon acceptance.

Accommodations are not provided, however there are many hotel options in close proximity to the rehearsal/performance hall. The final concert is scheduled for 4 pm on January 7th. (Concert dress is of your choosing - please wear whatever you traditionally perform in for similar performing experiences.) 

Come be a part of a great tradition in playing great music and having lots of fun at SUU! For further questions contact Dr. Lambert at
