Concert Bands

High school band students will be involved in a diverse and comprehensive curriculum. Opportunities will be provided for each student to perform, create, analyze, and listen to a wide spectrum of historically and culturally significant music. Bloomington instrumental music programs focus on fostering and developing a life-long appreciation, understanding, and love for music as a means of self-expression and self-discipline. Daily rehearsals will include a well-balanced curriculum of large and small group performances, solo performance opportunities, studies in music theory, musical terminology, cultural and historical perspectives, and continuous evaluation of progress. There are four ability-based bands at Jefferson High School - Wind Ensemble, Varsity Band, Concert Band, and Symphonic Band. Band placement is determined by audition assessment, registration, and the overall instrumentation needs of each group.
