CONCERT BAND

 The Concert Band is open to students with previous instruction in wind and percussion instruments. It consists of modern wind band instrumentation and provides instruction in common-practice period and twentieth century wind literature and transcriptions. The Concert Band is a class that meets (for credit) throughout the entire year and performs several concerts and festivals each year.  Private study is highly encouraged.
