Concert Bands

Esperanza Concert Bands perform at a high level at all competitions and concerts. We field two excellent bands, Symphonic Band and Wind Ensemble. All students must audition for their placement in either the Wind Ensemble or the Symphonic Band. The Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Bands both meet during zero period so every student in the program will be in one or the other concert band. All bands consistently score Superiors (highest rating) at regional festivals. They also perform in multiple concerts throughout the year. Check the calendar for future festivals and concerts.

For the 2016-2017 school year please click on this link to open the page for all the audition instructions and music for the auditions. Auditions will be held on Thursday December 15th and Friday December 16th during zero period and all other band classes during these 2 days. Sign up Sheets will be posted in the band room and all students must sign up for a time slot for their audition on their primary instrument.
