The Symphony Band is the most musically advanced band at Groves. All sophomores, juniors and seniors will play a brief audition in the spring to establish their place in the proper ensemble. The students will play professional, college and high school literature when they perform at festivals, in concerts and as they take musically enriching trips around the nation. Solo and Ensemble performance is highly encouraged. Private lessons are 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.
Prerequisites: Audition or invitation of instructor for 10th and 11th grade students
