Concert Band is a band class designed for high school band students that want to continue playing their instruments in a traditional band setting, but do not participate in the marching band class or extra-curricular band activities. Symphonic Band is 1 of 2 band classes that a marching band student may move into during the 2nd semester after the completion of the marching season. There is no audition for the 2nd semester Symphonic Band membership, but students will audition for chair/part placement and must meet basic music standards and have been in a 1st semester band class and receive director approval. Wind Ensemble is a comprehensive audition and/or director approved band class. It is 1 of 2 band classes that a 1st semester concert band or marching band student may audition for and participate in during the 2nd semester.

Legend HS Concert/Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble students will be assigned a band lock and locker or other storage space for their use throughout the year. Lockers will be assigned based upon availability, need and instrument size. Students will store their instruments, music, music supplies and depending on the locker size, additional school items. The Locker and Lock rental cost for the school year is $5.00. Students who lose or misplace locks will be required to pay an additional $5.00 replacement fee.

Students that are in Concert Band, Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble will participate in the Winter concert, Feeder concert, Spring concert, band festivals and other scheduled events. Students in the ensembles listed above will be expected to practice at home regularly and show consistent improvement to attain a grade of “A” in the class. In addition, students are expected to have instruments that are in excellent working condition, along with all of the supplies(music/reeds/valve oil etc…) that will contribute to a positive musical experience, with them everyday in class. Private music lessons are encouraged and highly recommended! Attendance is required at all dress rehearsals and performances. Students must be enrolled in band for both semesters. All Band Classes are YEAR-LONG Participation CLASSES.

Many studies have shown that taking private music lessons is a major contributor in the success of a developing musician.
