Performances are mandatory and will include concerts, contests, festivals, assemblies, parades, field shows and community functions. Some after school practices will be required. All Concert Band members will perform in marching and pep bands.

Equipment to be provided by student: Student will need to provide his/her own instrument for practice/rehearsal/performance. Certain large instruments (i.e. percussion, marching percussion, French horn, euphonium, tuba, etc.), are available to rent from the school (District Maintenance/Repair Fee will apply to these checked-out instruments).
