During November-May the Freshman Band meets as a traditional concert band. Concert and contest performances are frequent and include the preparation and performance of fine band literature. This is a performance-based class for which attendance before and/or after school rehearsals and performances is required and is an integral part of the students’ grade. In addition to group activities, students are expected to participate in 所有-Region 带 auditions and UIL Solo & Ensemble Contest. Students are expected to purchase some supplies and small uniform items.
