CSUF Titan High School Honor Band


Greetings, Colleagues:

The California State University, Fullerton Bands are pleased to announce the inaugural CSUF Titan High School Honor Band! We are excited to invite you and your students to join us!

The CSUF Titan High School Honor Band will rehearse at the CSUF School of Music according to the following rehearsal schedule:


April 13th, 2023 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM.          April 14th, 2023 – 6:00 PM – 9:00 PM.

April 15th, 2023 – 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM (Lunch Included)


The Titan High School Honor Band will perform at Meng Concert Hall on Saturday, April 15th, 2023, at 8:00 PM in concert with the CSUF Symphonic Winds. The Titan High School Honor Band will perform the works of Satoshi Yagisawa (Fanfare-The Benefaction from Sky and Mother Earth), JoAnne Harris (The Lighthouse), Frank Ticheli (Amazing Grace), and Michael Markowski (Shine).

Participation and seating in the honor band will be determined by director recommendation. We ask high school band directors to recommend no more than three to four students, which will allow students from a variety of schools to participate. Directors will be asked to use a ranking system for their musician recommendations, with the top two students guaranteed admission to the ensemble. Those ranked 3 or 4 will be admitted based upon space in the ensemble. We ask that each director recommend students whose talent, musicality, and maturity will allow them to be successful in a serious honor band environment. Please see the following honor band recommendation formOpens in new window
