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 six world-renowned guest conductors and a soloist. Held in Seattle, Washington each November, students from the United States, Canada and Australia participate in the honor band event. In 2013, a college honor band, WIBC U, 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.
