The Symphonic 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 this band. In addition, ensemble skills will be developed through the rehearsal and performance of full band arrangements in a variety of styles.
Students will have the option of participating in auditions for the All-Region Band. Symphonic Band members are expected to participate in the College Station I.S.D. Solo and Ensemble Contest, as well as all Symphonic Band performances throughout the school year.
The Symphonic Band will participate in the UIL Concert and Sight-Reading Contest in April, and will also participate in an additional contest or festival. Members will be required to keep a weekly practice record for a grade and also be expected to attend a few clinic rehearsals in March and April as we prepare for contest.
