Wind Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble

Wind Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble represent the premiere ensembles in the FHS band program and perform the most challenging repertoire available to modern concert bands and percussion ensembles. Members of Wind Ensemble and Percussion Ensemble are expected to take private lessons, audition for All-District Band, perform at Solo and Ensemble Festival and participate in the spring trip. Members of this ensemble are also members of the Marching Rebels.

    

  

Symphonic Band

Symphonic Band is Fairfax High School’s second advanced ensemble and also performs a challenging repertoire. Members of Symphonic Band are encouraged to take private lessons, audition for All-District Band, perform at Solo and Ensemble Festival and participate in the spring trip. Members of this ensemble are also members of the Marching Rebels.

Concert Band

Concert Band provides the opportunity to support individual progress and extended education in common rhythms and basic instrumental technique, with the intention of preparing students for membership in Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, or Percussion Ensemble. Concert Band members are strongly encouraged to take private lessons and are welcome to participate in the spring trip. Although Concert Band members are highly encouraged to join the Marching Rebels, participation in marching band is not mandatory for this ensemble.

  

Beginning Band

Beginning Band is open to all high school students who are interested in learning a band instrument for the first time or who played briefly in elementary school and are interested in joining again. Students will be given assistance in the selection of an instrument and may participate in performance opportunities during the school year.
