What is WIBC?

The Western International Band Clinic is a convention for directors and students. Started in 1979, WIBC features four 150-member high school honor bands under 6 world-renowned guest conductors and a soloist. Held in Seattle, Washington each November. Each year, students from the United Stated, Canada and Australia participate. In 2013, a college honor band was also added. Honor Band audition material can be found at the WIBC Audition Page.

In addition to the honor bands, a weekend of clinics and sightreading band of new music are scheduled for participating directors. More information can be found on the WIBC page.
