Concert Ensemble

Concert Ensemble is our second band in which the students from 7th to 12th grade meet to further their skills in band. The focus of this class is to enhance the foundation of materials learned from the previous years in band. The goal of this group is for each individual to eventually move into the symphonic winds.

The curriculum for this class includes teamwork, student leadership, basic musical concepts, tuning, intonation recognition of notes and rhythms, some small ensemble work and individual achievement on all these elements for a class grade.

This group has three concerts every school year including a Christmas concert, a Spring concert and also has the opportunity to be a part of the Spring Festival that the directors decide upon. Past trips for Spring Festival have included Chattanooga and Atlanta.  Consideration for this group is primarily based on past performance in class and by recommendation of the band directors.

Other opportunities for the members of this group include trying out for District 14 Honor Band, All State Band and several other honor groups around the Atlanta area.  For more information about how to be a part of this group, contact Mr. Smith.
