Concert Band



The Concert Band is the nucleus of the band program and is devoted to performing various styles and genres of music.  These include Classical, Pop, Jazz/Swing, Rock, Latin, as well as the standard concert band repertoire.

The Concert Band performs two or three high school concerts per year,performances in the community, the Optimist Festival, and is evaluated each spring at the Florida Bandmasters Associations' District 19 Music Performance Assessment. 


The school will provide white bow ties/white cummerbunds for the concert band uniforms for all performances. The students are responsible for a black tux shirt ($20), black pants (not jeans) and black shoes/socks. (Black marching band shoes are fine).

Current Fundraiser

Students have been given a Domino's fundraiser sheet to sell cards for pizza.  These were passed out on both Tuesday and Thursday, July 18 & 20. This fundraiser can help students pay for band camp ($100) or their fair share which is $200 for the entire year.  All money the kids raise go into their own band account at the school. Remember that you can subtract $5 for each music rehearsal you attended in July (4 total).
