Concert Band


Course Syllabus:  Concert Band

At the conclusion of marching season all band students, with an audition that takes place the previous school year, are placed into one of 3 concert band ensembles by their ability level. The Wind Symphony, under the direction of Chris Church, the Symphonic Band, under the direction of Victoria Meraz, and the Concert Band, under the direction of John Paul Chapman, all participate in some type of adjudicated festival in the Spring Semester. They also participate in the Annual Christmas Concert, Spring Concert, and at other school functions.

The three concert bands rehearse during 1st, 2nd, 3rd hours with extra rehearsals being held before school for further preparation.

The Symphonic Winds Ensemble attends the Southwest Missouri State University Pride Classic Concert Band Festival held annually in April or May.

These students also participate in the South Central Missouri Music Educators Association All-District Band Activities in the fall and the Missouri State High School Activity Association District and State Solo and Ensemble Festivals.
