Lawrence Community Symphonic Band (Grades 7-12, non-auditioned)
The Lawrence Community Symphonic Band is open to dedicated woodwind, brass, and percussion players in grades 7-12; no audition is required. Band members should have at least two years of experience on their instrument. The ensemble provides students the opportunity to prepare and perform challenging band literature and promotes the development of patience, confidence, artistry, and community. Symphonic Band rehearses weekly and performs in November and March of each year with the Community Music School's Wind Ensemble.
The Lawrence Community Symphonic Band is an appropriate first step for students who wish to play in the Lawrence Community Wind Ensemble, our auditioned, honors band.
Students registered for Community Music School ensembles are also expected to participate in a curricular (during the school day, for credit) performing musical ensemble when available; Symphonic Band should not substitute for curricular music programs.
