Band (Marching Band/Concert Bands)

This class is available to all students in grades 9-12.  Members must be involved in the band program.  Exceptions are for students wishing to participate in the colorguard, which holds auditions in the previous spring semester.  Students involved in the marching band will be required to attend the organization’s band camp held before the start of the school year.  Rehearsals through the quarter begin at 7:30 am and continue through 1st period.

Students are reminded that this is an activity which places high musical skills as well as high physical demands on the student.  The marching band performs at all home football games and travels to four competitions throughout the quarter–attendance at these events is mandatory for students.  The marching band’s focus through the quarter is to work on a competitive marching band show which demonstrates a high degree of artistry and musicality.

Symphonic Band
The Symphonic Band will work on all facets of music, from the basic ideas through the very complex, technical skills and how to incorporate them into our performance.  We will also emphasize performance etiquette, self-discipline, and the development of aesthetic values for the art of music performance.  Auditions and chair placements for Symphonic Band are held at the beginning of second semester.  The symphonic winds will perform at three concerts throughout the school year.  Opportunities for solo and small ensemble work are also available and encouraged.
