Concert Band - 1.0 credit

Grades 9-12

 

The WHS Concert Band is an outstanding performance ensemble that performed at regional and national festivals and in renowned venues across the country. Though the ensemble prides itself on performing high-level music, it welcomes any and all students who have previously studied a concert band instrument. Through their rehearsal preparation and concerts, the students will not only learn the fundamentals of technique and performance, but will collaborate together developing strong relationships that extend beyond musical performance. The ensemble embraces students that are musically advanced as well as those that have not been in band for a few years or have not even played an instrument before. Students will participate in all major required performances, school and community events, field trips, and festivals, as they are a significant part of the program. Students are also given the opportunity to take private lessons as well as audition for the NHMEA Classical All State Festival. Students will also participate in the WHS Pep Band performing at home football games. Students may elect Concert Band four times for credit.
