Symphonic Band  

ACHS's intermediate auditioned concert ensemble

The concert program is where instrumentalists hone their technique and tone. Instead of incorporating visual along with music like in Marching Band, students are able to improve their technical skills and develop mature tone production and ear training through several performances throughout the year. Concert Ensembles are required co-requisites for all Marching Band members. Enrollment in a concert ensemble does not require enrollment in Marching Band.
