Comprised mainly of 9th and 10th graders, the Concert Band serves as the bridge into high school literature, giving younger musicians a chance to further hone their musical techniques in preparation for more advanced literature. Members are expected to practice daily, and are strongly encouraged to study privately with a local professional to further their musical endeavors. The group performs several concerts throughout the year and at the GMEA Large Group Performance Evaluation, performing a repertoire of both popular and festival literature. Members are encouraged to pursue additional performance opportunities (District Band, Honors Clinics, Solo & Ensemble, etc.).
