The marching band is a co-curricular activity comprised of the playing members (winds and percussion) and the color guard/auxiliary. This organization meets during after school hours. All playing members of the marching band (winds/percussion) should be enrolled in a band class. The marching band begins preparation for their fall season during the summer.
The jazz ensemble is comprised of students who play any of the following instruments: saxophone (alto, tenor, or baritone), trumpet, trombone, percussion, string or electric bass, piano and/ or electric keyboards, and guitar through audition only.
Crème de la Crème is the dance line for the marching band. This is an audition based group. Auditions are held in the Spring for the next school year. Summer rehearsals are mandatory.
The Percussion Class is comprised of all percussion students who participate in the band program. Other students who play wind instruments in the other bands may also join from time to time. This ensemble performs music written for percussion ensembles of various sizes and instrumentation.
This ensemble focuses more on developing the necessary musicianship abilities to master the instrument. The music performed by this ensemble will not be as demanding as that performed by the Wind Ensemble. This music will usually perform two to three concerts per year and participate in at least one festival.
