2 periods per week
This group is formed by open audition in the first week of school. High School band usually comprises of several vocalists, two keyboard players, bass, guitars, drums, percussion and other solo instruments. All the music is chosen by the band and represents a wide range of contemporary rock and pop material. We rehearse in the school band room, which boasts a full digital recording studio. Large live stage sets are the band performance venues four times during the year. The band works towards making professional quality C.D.s and D.V.D.s and has a one-day workshop to shoot an on-location music video. Opportunities are given within the program for students to master: technical equipment; instruments; video and sound editing. Students take full responsibility for stage presentation, choreography, musical direction, C.D. and D.V.D. presentations.
High School Band meets:
- Period 8 on Fridays and Friday afternoons until 4:00 p.m.
- Wednesdays at lunch time
