This band really swings! Advanced musicians play pieces with more complicated jazz rhythm.  Many students play in both Jazz and Concert Bands.

Designed for the more advanced student musician, Concert Band students learn ensemble pieces that expand their musicianship.  Concert Band members are joined by several adult musicians who are excellent models for the students.  Seasonal and outreach concerts mark the highlight of the year.
