PURPOSE: The Symphonic Band is an advanced performing group with preparation for Honor Winds and the Coppell High School Band program as a primary objective. Students will perform at concerts and contests throughout the school year, including UIL Concert and Sightreading Contest, and major regional contest festivals in the area (Meyerson Symphony Center, Bass Hall, Majestic Theatre, etc.). Students will also perform at the solo and ensembles contest as well as the All-City Band tryout process, provided they have met the eligibility requirements. Instrumentation is limited to those who show advanced performance abilities and superior attitudes. Members are selected based upon their progress the previous year of band as well as a playing audition.
Symphonic Band members meet as an ensemble (all instrument sections together).
