The Concert Band meets during third period and begins at the start of the school year and lasts 2 semesters. The goal of this ensemble is to develop individual and ensemble skills through a very thorough and detailed focus on fundamentals, scales, listening, and technique. This ensemble is a listening-focused, process-oriented group that provides an opportunity for students to develop and emphasize interactive musical skills in a large ensemble setting. The Concert Band will perform in several concerts and will generally not travel outside the school district except for one metro area festival in the spring. Students are also expected to perform with the Basketball Pep Band games in the winter.
