Wind Symphony/Symphonic Band/Concert Band

All students will be evaluated and placed in the appropriate level ensemble based on demonstrated skill level and instrumentation needs.

Due to growth in the number of student performers, this year we are excited to now have TWO Concert Bands which will both perform in 2016/17.

CONCERT BAND is open to those students who have achieved a basic degree of proficiency on a woodwind, brass, or percussion instrument. Emphasis will be placed on basic skills and music theory. This ensemble will perform at concerts and other functions. A method book fee will be collected. Members of the Concert Band are also eligible to participate in all co-curricular band activities.

A wide variety of music, individual skills, and theory will be covered in this course. This ensemble will perform at concerts and other functions. A method book fee will be collected.
