Symphonic Band is a yearlong course devoted to the study of music written and arranged for wind and percussion instruments. Students of varying levels of ability and experience are invited to participate, but are expected to have a firm grasp of basic playing fundamentals and the technical demands of their instrument, as well as the facility to read standard music notation with at least moderate fluency. Students will study concert band literature representing various styles, historical periods, and traditions, and they will also work in chamber music ensembles. Attendance at all concert performances is mandatory.
