SCHS Instrumental Music Ensembles

 

The Concert Band

This is a full year band performance ensemble which emphasizes the continued development of students playing skills.  This group focuses on intermediate high school band literature.  Students are auditioned in the spring of the previous school year and are placed in this ensemble according to musical ability on their instrument.  This ensemble performs in 4 concerts and District Band Festival. 

 

 Beginning in late July the Concert Band combines with the Wind ensemble to form the “Dragon Marching Band” at a mandatory Band Camp held at Swartz Creek High School.  These two ensembles remain combined through early November at which time they split to form two separate performing ensembles.  They remain this way until May when they reform as the “Dragon Marching Band”.
