Auditions are not necessary for the Concert Band and there is no limit on the number of members. Scholarships are available.

The Jazz Band is an elite 18-piece big band. Students participate in a performing ensemble that explores the entire repertoire for the big band, including (but not limited to) dance band, swing, Latin and contemporary and current charts. This ensemble maintains a demanding practice and performance schedule, including a spring tour that has in the past taken the group across the U.S. and to parts of Canada and the Bahamas. Members must audition for a spot in the group, though previous jazz experience is not a requirement. Scholarships are available.

The Pep Band performs at home basketball games and is comprised of 15 to 25 members selected from the Concert Band. Music performed by this group is similar to that of a marching band. Scholarships are available.
