The Symphonic Band provides dedicated woodwind, brass, and percussion players the opportunity to prepare and perform challenging band literature. The ensemble is open to students in grades 7-12; no audition is required. Band members should have at least two years of experience on their instrument. The ensemble rehearses weekly and performs in November and March of each year with the Academy Wind Ensemble.
Symphonic Band is an appropriate first step for students who wish to play in the Academy Wind Ensemble.
Students registered for Academy ensembles are also expected to participate in a curricular (during the school day, for credit) performing musical ensemble when available; Symphonic Band should not substitute for curricular music programs.
