Students will rehearse and perform music ranging widely in style and difficulty, with an emphasis on broadening their knowledge of repertoire and developing technical ability. The band performs at home football games and pep rallies, marches in selected parades, and performs in four concerts throughout the year. Students are expected to reserve all performance dates. Students who have achieved a higher level of proficiency are encouraged to audition for a number of festivals. Smaller ensembles of students with similar ability will be allowed to pursue more challenging literature. Meets every other day all year.
Prerequisite: A year’s experience in band or private instruction, or with departmental approval.
Band may be taken multiple times for credit.
