The AJJH Symphonic Band is a mixed group of 7th and 8th graders playing all band instruments. It is one of two exclusive groups who have been chosen to represent AJJH at various contests throughout the year.
The Symphonic Band keeps a very busy schedule throughout the year. ALL students in the band signed a contract at the end of the 14-15 school year agreeing to participate in all rehearsals and performances. Students and their parents will be held to the obligations of this contract. Sectionals will be held weekly in the band hall for approximately 45 minutes. Students are expected to attend once a week on their scheduled day for a major grade in band. The band will have a group discussion prior to the schedule being made to discuss any potential conflicts, and Mrs. Tieman will do the best she can to assure that students can fulfill their commitments to both band and other school activities.
Symphonic Band activities include:
Potentially auditioning for region band
Performance at Showdown on Sheldon football game (evening)
UIL Concert & Sightreading (nonvarsity group)
Solo & Ensemble Contest
Spring Festival & Schlitterbahn Trip
PLUS any other events for which we may be asked to play.
Symphonic Band students are typically next in line to be in the Wind Ensemble, which is the top band at AJJH. Members will be held to a very high standard musicially, academically, and behaviorally.
