The Symphonic Band is designed for experienced instrumental students who have mastered fundamental techniques and have proven themselves to be advanced in musical abilities and maturity. Symphonic Band members are challenged with the finest and most demanding band literature of varying styles commensurate with the ability level of the group. Students are required to perform at all scheduled concerts, are members of the marching band, and must attend rotating sectionals.
Audition material is selected from the ILMEA Scale Sheet, the ILMEA Prepared Etudes, and Sight-Reading.
