Meets during WHITE 1

Open to students in grades 9-12

The concert band provides students with a balanced comprehensive study of music that develops skills in the psychomotor, cognitive, and affective domains. Ensemble and solo activities are designed to develop elements of musicianship including tone production, technical skills, intonation, music reading skills, listening skills, analyzing music, studying historically significant styles of literature, and integration of other applicable disciplines. Students study a varied repertoire of developmentally appropriate concert band literature and develop the ability to understand and convey the composer’s intent in performance of music. 

The concert band performs at ISSMA organizational festival every spring. In 2018, the band earned GOLD ratings for their stage and sight-reading performances with a difficult and challenging program. Additionally, the concert band also provides athletic entertainment through the pep band.
