Symphonic Band is the advanced level performance-based ensemble at Southside High School. Students must be able to read music well and comfortably perform advanced level skills. Emphasis is placed on individual tone production, technical development and sight-reading, as well as ensemble balance, blend, intonation, and aesthetic musical growth. This will be accomplished through the drilling of tone and technical exercises and the performance of literature.
After school rehearsals and local, regional, or national performances are to be expected and required. Students who participate in the Symphonic Band also have the opportunity to an individual audition for various county, region, and state bands.
Note: Symphonic band students are required to be enrolled in Tiger Pride Band.
