Other notes of interest:

Several students take more than one ensemble. For instance, playing
bass in Orchestra and Jazz Band, singing in Choir and playing in Band,
etc.

All performance ensembles include several performances throughout
the year.

There are many ways to get your credits and still have room in your
schedule for music and foreign language! Talk to your counselor about
PE waivers and online courses!

The advanced ensembles are planning a trip in the spring!
Make the most of your High School Education and Experience!
