Wayne Valley High School Symphonic Band
The Symphonic Band is an in-school instrumental ensemble that emphasizes performance of challenging literature written for band, and/or transcriptions from orchestral and choral works. Repertoire includes selections at Level 3, 4, and 5 (NAfME Standards) in contemporary and traditional compositions. Students will further develop their musicianship through interpretation, trained hearing and response. Musicality, technique, phrasing and the ability to analyze form are major areas to be stressed. They will develop self-awareness and learn how to self-evaluate through the higher level warm-ups and grade appropriate literature along with weekly small group lessons.
