Concert Band Season

Concert band season is rolling around for our high school band, along with the end of marching band season and football season.

Several band members only do concert band. Some do a different instrument in Concert Band than Marching Band. Some do Color Guard instead of an instrument during the marching season.

A lot of people are excited about the upcoming concert band. Morgan Troup says, “Second Clarinet is gonna be lit.” In band, there are several sections of instruments. There are Percussion, Trombones, Baritone (A.k.a. Euphonium), Clarinets, Alto Saxes, Tenor and Baritone Sax, Mellophone/ French Horn, Flutes, and Trumpets.

Within those sections there are chair placements. When the sections compete to see who is section leader, second chair, third chair, etc.

Everyone in band is looking forward to seeing what the lineup of music is. But they already know about the traditional sleigh ride song for the Christmas Concert coming up this December.
