High School, Mr. Dee Bishop, Director of Bands, Tates Creek High School, and Dr. Andrew Boyson, composer, conductor and graduate of the Eastman School of Music.  The honor bands performend a wide range of contemporary and classic concert band literature and were afforded the opportunity to participate in master classes with EKU Faculty and students as well as attending a concert performance given by the EKU Wind Symphony.
