The M.U.S.E. Honor Band are a select group of students who are chosen by their teachers as outstanding students who reflect a strong dedication to their music and school band. Students (grades 5-8) are chosen from our local schools. M.U.S.E. currently has music programs in 24 Portland area schools. Performances have included: Holiday Music at the Portland Airport and Lloyd Center, High School basketball games, the Winter and Spring M.U.S.E. Concerts, The Portland Rose Festival, and a CD Recording at the end of the year. There is no cost to participate. The only cost for parents is to make your child has a M.U.S.E. Honor Band T-shirt. This is the same shirt we have been using for the last few years so if you are a returning student and have a shirt already you are all set.

Students who participate in Honor band must make a commitment to the group.

  1. 1.Students need to make it a priority to attend concerts, rehearsals, and special events.
