Concert Band

Concert Dress

Men: black dress pants or black khaki pants (no Dickies because of the red tag), white button down shirt (long sleeve), black socks, black dress shoes, and a tie of your choice. No jackets while performing.

Women: You may wear the same as the guys. You may also do a dressy white female blouse with black pants. If you do a dress, it must be all black (no polka-dots or stripes). Dresses or black skirts must be below the knees. Wear black flats or a 1 inch heel at the most. Avoid noisy shoes!

In most cases, you will sit in the audience when not performing, make sure your clothing looks professional and that you act professional when sitting and watching other groups perform.

Course Description

Freshmen primarily sign up for Concert Band as their band class.

Upper classmen enroll as a 2nd band class or may be placed here pending audition or class conflict.

During the fall, the Concert Band learns all Pep music tunes for performance at selected Fremont football games and prepares a winter concert program in December. During the spring, the ensemble will perform Grade 3 (out of 6) music for concerts and festivals annually as part of its musical development and education. Beginning techniques acquired in the middle school level of music will be enhanced by the curriculum for high school age concert band/large ensembles. Music reading skills will be enhanced by a steady diet of Sight-Reading materials & music. One Concert Report or equivalent projects will be assigned per semester to focus on the National Music Standard of Reading & Writing about music. ALL BAND STUDENTS WILL DO 1 PARADE, THE NOVEMBER FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS IN LOS ALTOS ANNUALLY.
