Concert Ensemble Opportunities and Responsibilities
The Symphonic Band is an advanced ensemble, and a full year course. Comprised of woodwinds, brass, and percussion, members of the Symphonic Band are 9-12 grade students at Perry High School. This band rehearses and performs various styles of music such as classical, pop, marches, jazz, contemporary, etc. The music that is rehearsed and performed is at a greater difficulty level, and thus, requires that its members be dedicated while displaying a higher level of technical ability. Participation in the Symphonic Band will result in mandatory performances and rehearsals, including Pops, Winter, and Spring concerts, Pre-Festival Concerts, Graduation, and participation at the District 5 MSBOA Band Festival. Participation in District and State Solo & Ensemble is strongly recommended.
