The Concert Band consists of students in grades 10 through 12, and performs as a concert and marching unit at school and community functions. It studies standard band literature from an intermediate to advanced level. Emphasis is placed on the continuing development and study of all technical and musical concepts. This class includes weekly Wednesday evening and seminar rehearsals during the marching season, and may include extra rehearsals at other times throughout the school year. The student must attend a summer band camp (at their expense). Failure to fulfill the requirements of Marching Band will result in loss of credit for the Concert Band for the first marking period.
In addition to the marching season, the Concert Band performs in the Holiday concert in December, the Festival concert in February, the Band Festival in March, and the Spring concert in May each year. There are also opportunities for students to participate in the District and State Solo & Ensemble Festival as soloists, small ensembles, and large chamber ensembles.
