Kimberley Denis

Alberta Band Association
Managing Director
The Alberta Band Association hosts three Junior Honour Bands in the province, and for the first time, the ABA will be hosting a Central Alberta Junior Honour Band program to provide an advanced performance experience for those students who demonstrate excellence in leadership, musicality and engagement in their home band programs. Leading music educators in the province guide the students through three days of fun and intensive rehearsals. The experience culminates in a concert performance of repertoire that the students have prepared in rehearsal. The Junior Honour Bands are intentionally held during Teachers\' Convention so that music teachers in the area may attend an open rehearsal with the band and learn from their colleagues. This year\'s Central Alberta Junior Honour Band conductor will be Brian Uzick. Following the rehearsal, Brian will open the floor for a brief discussion of rehearsal techniques and information related to the honour band experience. Brian was a junior high and high school band instructor for 27 years and his bands toured extensively across North America and Europe. Since his retirement in 2018, he continues to teach clinics, guest conduct, plan workshops, mentor and adjudicate throughout Western Canada.
