The concert is made up of 7th and 8th grade students joining band for the first time. Concert is a place for students who are interested in learning a traditional musical instrument and to explore its possibilities at a slightly faster pace than a traditional beginning band class. Band students develop leadership, gain self esteem, and learn to perform as a team. Our instrumentation includes: Woodwinds - Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Clarinet and Saxophone; Brass - Trumpet, F Horn, Trombone, Euphonium and Tuba; Percussion - bells, marimba, snare/bass drum, timpani and accessories. Performance participation is required in order to be a member of this groups. During the course of the year, students may participate in the following types of performances: formal evening concerts, a music festival, and solo and ensemble performances.
