Symphonic Band is a performance ensemble of woodwinds, brass, and percussion. Symphonic Band is open to all students who have a strong interest and background playing a band instrument. Students will understand and appreciate the sense of community that comes with working hard together, supporting each other, and creating great music. Performance expectations include Christmas and Spring concerts, pep band, and solo and ensemble contest. There may be opportunities to perform at Cabaret Night, band festivals, honor bands, and local community/church concerts, as well as other published events and trips. All band students meet for periodic group lessons each semester. Private lessons are not required but are strongly encouraged to help students continue their musical development.
