Bands

Beginning Band

The Beginning Band is designed for players who are new to their instrument. As you might expect, placement appointments are not required, but a consultation with the conductor (typically scheduled during the placement appointments for the other bands) is highly recommended. Beginning Band performs at the Winter Concert and Spring Concert 1.

Cadet Band

The Cadet Band is for students who have little experience on their instrument but are not beginners. The Cadet Band performs at the Winter Concert and Spring Concert 1. Placement appointments will determine placement of students in the Cadet Band.

Concert Band

Concert Band is for students who have demonstrated a significant level of musical skills.  This is a serious performing group that participates at the Youth Arts Coalition Band, Orchestra and Choral Festival, as well as several concerts throughout the year, including the Christmas Concert and Spring Concert 2.  They are also being trained in personal and ensemble skills necessary for participation in the Symphonic Band.  Placement appointments are required for placement in the Concert Band.

Symphonic Band

The Symphonic Band is our most advanced band, comprised of students who are very proficient on their instruments. These students are held to the highest standards of musicianship. Symphonic Band performs at the Youth Arts Coalition Band, Orchestra and Choral Festival, represents HSMA on tour, and performs numerous times throughout the year, including the Christmas Concert and Spring Concert 3. Placement appointments are required for placement in the Symphonic Band.
