The South Caldwell Concert Band represents the incoming and future leaders of the program. Instrumentation is open and chair placement is determined by audition, following the fall concert. The ensemble requires a serious commitment, as students are expected to make musical strides throughout the year, developing in individual tone, intonation, technique, musical expression, and overall musicianship. Students are also expected to learn about ensemble characteristics, such as balance, blend, tuning techniques, style, and listening.
The ensemble intends to perform in Grades III & IV regularly. Expectations for members include: daily practice, auditioning for honors bands (county, district, and state), and performing regularly with chamber ensembles.
