Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble are year long concert band classes. They perform four times throughout the year in the Performing Arts Theater. Performances include traditional band repertoire such as original wind compositions, light music, popular tunes and marches. The Symphonic Band is for incoming students as well as students learning additional instruments, and the Wind Ensemble is for all returning students. A student will audition for Wind Ensemble in late spring of their freshman year in Symphonic Band.
During the second semester, our Orchestra, Symphonic Band, Wind Ensemble and Jazz groups participate in Festivals which offer the opportunity of showcasing a high standard of performance through the use of the music lists and adjudication by trained and qualified experts in music education. The SCSBOA (Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association) believes that the comments and suggestions of these adjudicators will help the development of each soloist, ensemble, or performing organization.
