The Concert Bands are divided by year in school in order to allow students to perform a diverse selection of select wind band repertoire. The bands offered at Rincon and University High Schools are Symphonic Band (for upper-class wind players), and Concert Band (for freshman wind players). The top level concert band is the Wind Ensemble which is open by audition only. Students prepare music for performances throughout the spring semester, as well as audition and perform in regional and state honor bands and orchestras. In April 2008, the Wind Ensemble premiered at Carnegie Hall in New York City. In 2010, they recorded at Lucasfilm’s Skywalker Sound in San Francisco.
Prerequisites: None. The concert bands are open to anyone who plays a musical instrument. Beginners may be accommodated after a meeting with the director. There will be a placement audition. Wind Ensemble is by audition only.
