The Concert Band is designed for students with one or more years of playing experience. Directors will emphasize the continued development of fundamentals, technique, and musicality with these students. In addition, ensemble skills will be developed through the rehearsal and performance of full band arrangements in a variety of styles.
Concert Band members are expected to participate in the College Station I.S.D. Solo and Ensemble Contest, as well as two concerts during the school year. Depending on the progress during the year of the Concert Band, they may participate in the UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Contest in April.
Members will be required to keep a weekly practice record for a grade, and they will also be expected to attend a few clinic rehearsals in March and April as we prepare for contest.
