Durand Bands

  • Marching Band
    In the beginning of the school year, band members embark on a rigorous schedule of practices in anticipation of performances at home football games, marching band contests, and parades.
  • Concert Band
    After the marching season, the Concert Band is formed. Concert Band is a training group, organized to meet the needs of those student lacking the experience and/or skills required for enrollment into Symphonic Band. The course covers, in great detail, tone production (enembouchure), rhythm and counting, technical skills associated with fingers, and articulations, scales, basic fundamentals of theory, and sight-reading.
  • Symphonic Band
    Symphonic Band is designed to lead musically talented students to skills and knowledge required in performing the finest pieces of music. The Symphonic Band presents holiday, pre-festival, and spring concerts with assembly programs.
