Concert Band is comprised annually of incoming 9th grade students. In one short year, these students will build strong musical foundations that will catapult them into the rest of their high school band career. Rehearsal and performance skills are a stressed component of the class. Members are strongly encouraged to participate in the OMEA District XV Solo & Ensemble festival, typically held each year in February. The Concert Band performs at 3-4 evening concerts throughout the year and may travel to an adjudicated festival each spring. All Concert Band members perform at 5 basketball games as part of their grade. Additionally, the Concert Band members combine with the other two bands to make the marching band that performs for the Rose Festival events in the spring.
