Concert Band

 #8201 Concert Band

Grades 9-12 / Full year course - 2.0 credits

Prerequisites:  Completion of Cadet Band requirements 


The Concert Band is an advanced instrumental ensemble that demands a high level of commitment to musical performance. Students will be expected to utilize their knowledge of large ensemble performance practice, basic music theory, and the technical aspects of their particular instrument, gained in Cadet Band or an equivalent musical experience, to perform sophisticated high school music literature. Students in this ensemble are required to participate in a solo performance festival in March and perform in no less than four formal concerts throughout the year. Students from this ensemble are invited to participate in the York Marching “Dukes” Band and are encouraged to participate in the York Pep Band. Selected students will also perform with the Concert Orchestra on several York High School Orchestra Concerts.
