Prerequisite: Prior experience in band and an audition. Membership in this ensemble may be granted to students with musical background (but no prior band experience) by special permission from the director.
This medium-advanced to advanced level course will be designed for the abilities and development of the most accomplished wind and percussion students in our program. This ensemble will demand a higher level of responsibility and performance from each individual member. Course material will be designed to advance the student’s existing skills and expose them to advanced musical literature and theories. Units for this ensemble will include marching band, concert band, and pep band. Students in this course will also have the opportunity to participate in extra-curricular groups such as jazz band, “pit” orchestra/band, chamber ensembles, orchestra, and various music festivals and events (see section IX). Enrollment in this course will primarily be based upon an audition and personnel needs, with consideration given towards prior experience, individual growth, personal initiative, and leadership ability.
Course Fee: ~$75
