Symphonic Band

This band consists of students who are confidently playing their instruments and have conquered all the basics. We play a wide variety of music from classical to Broadway hits, hymns to marches, and everything in between. All other bands are made up of students from this ensemble such as Jazz Band and the seasonal Pep Band. This band has given many students the experience they need to launch into other musical endeavors including MTSBOA mid-state and all-state bands, Rally Day Honor Band, area orchestras, pit orchestras, the Nashville C.U.R.B. Orchestra, as well as other music organizations.
