Kuna Concert Band
The Kuna Concert Band is the developmental concert ensemble of the Kuna High School Band Program, designed for students to build a music foundation. This ensemble performs contemporary and standard works for wind band, as well as transcriptions and new works. The Concert Band works to prepare students for participation in the Wind Ensemble and outside honor groups.
Each year the Concert Band performs at several local events. These events include various local concerts, community events, the District III Band Festival, Graduation and Concert Clinics. The Kuna Concert Band may travel as part of a spring performance tour at special events such as the Disney Performing Arts Series.
The Concert Band is primarily made up of students in grades 9-10, though membership is open to students in grades 9-12. Membership is by director approval only. The ensemble begins rehearsing at the conclusion of marching band, and participation in marching band is a requirement for membership.
As a band, we had a great time Tuesday night as we got together and recorded many of the songs and exercises which we've been working on during the second quarter. I'm so proud of all the students' efforts and their individual practice to put these songs together. It's been a blast for me as a teacher to see their incredible growth during these short 9 weeks!
Below is the link to the YouTube playlist for our recorded material. This link will continue to be available on our band website as well (www.kunabands.com).
Next semester we look forward to having all of our concert band and fall band students participating in the same class together (6th period concert band) and having all of our percussionists in percussion class (3rd period percussion). If you're not sure of your student's band schedule for the remainder of the year, please feel free to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all of your support during these times and ENJOY THE MUSIC!
