What Is The Combine?

An All Day Historically Black College & University Band recruitment fair that allows student musicians to earn scholarships by auditioning for various HBCU band directors under one roof. We also offer an all-day dance camp for the students who plan on taking their talents to college and beyond. As well as various breakout seminars to promote safe and healthy life for students as they embark upon a new collegiate experience.


Our goal is to grant students within our region the opportunity to pursue dreams of attending a HBCU.
