Sym 1 is an advanced concert band based on audition and past performance. It is a performance oriented ensemble for those students with a serious interest in developing their abilities on their instrument and the study of performance of upper level middle school and easier high school-level music. It is recommended (but not required) that these students study privately on their instrument. This ensemble will perform at least three concerts during the school year, participate in the district and state contest, perform at graduation, and for various community functions that require music. Instrumentation will be at the discretion of the director.
