Ohio Private College Instrumental Conductors Association Honors Band Festival
Founded in 1987, The Ohio Private College Instrumental Conductors Association (OPCICA) is comprised of more than twenty private colleges and universities in the state of Ohio. The primary purpose of the organization is to develop a closer network of communication and resource sharing among the instrumental departments, divisions, or conservatories of the various privately funded member institutions of higher education.
An additional purpose of the organization is to sponsor an annual honors festival featuring an Honors Concert Band and an Honors Jazz Ensemble, each comprised of students from the participating schools.
The 2011 OPCICA Honors Band Festival will be held January 22 and 23 at Ashland University in Ashland, OH. The concert featuring the OPCICA Honors Concert Band, the OPCICA Honors Jazz Ensemble, and the Ashland University Concert Band will be Sunday, January 23 at 1:30 pm in the Hugo Young Theatre, located in the Center for the Arts.
