Symphonic Band I
The Symphonic Band I is comprised of students with average musical and technical skills. Audition and overall performance history determine membership.
1. The Symphonic Band I performs at least three concerts and competes in the UIL Concert and Sight- reading Contest. Additional performances may include one or more festivals and occasional guest appearances.
2. Members of the Symphonic Band I are required to prepare the freshman region music. Freshmen members are encouraged to participate in the All-Region Freshmen tryouts and all juniors and seniors are encouraged to participate in the All-Region tryouts. Members are also STRONGLY ENCOURAGED to participate in the private lessons program!
3. Sectionals will be held throughout the season and are mandatory. The Symphonic Band I may have full band rehearsals during the school week and some Saturdays. All student jobs and doctor/dentist appointments should be scheduled around these rehearsals. Any interference with these rehearsals will result in a grade of a zero for that rehearsal.
4. Members of the Symphonic Band I are required to participate in the Marching Band Program.
