The Concert Band will include most incoming freshman, and some sophomores, juniors and seniors. All sophomores, juniors and seniors will play a brief audition in the spring to establish their placement in the proper ensemble. The students will play the finest high school literature as they perform at festivals, in concerts and take musically enriching trips around the nation. Solo and Ensemble performance is highly encouraged. Instruction includes advanced wind and percussion techniques to improve musical performance skills. All performances are a requirement of the class. This course is sequential and it is expected that students take all three terms of band courses.
