According to Frederick Schmidt, professor of music, clarinet and saxophone and Honors Band Festival director, the event has attracted over 3,500 students and 15 composers and clinicians to the campus in the past 18 years in addition to serving as a model for similar band clinics at colleges and universities in several states nationwide.
