Honor Bands

WIBC

The Western International Band Clinic is the biggest honor band in the Pacific Northwest. Each year, they take about 600 students from the greater northwest, including some students from as far away as Australia!

The 600 students are assigned to four different bands, who all share a rotating set of 5-6 professional conductors. WIBC is the way to go, if you're looking for a great experience that will leave you inspired and excited about music!

All-State/NW

All-State and All-Northwest are the most hard corps honor band opportunities available to students at BHS. Each student accepted to the program is assigned to a state or NW regional honor ensemble, and works with a single conductor for an entire weekend, often performing in major venues.

Students who make an All-State or All-NW ensemble their 9th, 10th, or 11th grade are eligible to audition for All-Nationals.
