MSU Hosts Honor Band Clinic

STARKVILLE, Miss. – (WCBI) Some of the best high school musicians in the Southeast are learning from some of the best teachers around.

More than 200 high school musicians are attending this week’s Honor Band Clinic at Mississippi State University. In almost its 60th year, the clinic exposes the students to top instructors in a variety of music styles. In addition to the music experiences, the students and their families get a special insight to life as a MSU student.

“The clinic if an outgrowth of a clinic that was begun actually over 60 years ago. Its original purpose was to introduce band directors to new music and it was referred to as the new materials clinic,” says MSU Band Director Elva Kaye Lance.

The clinic ends tomorrow and includes a free concert tonight at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday at 1 p.m.
