Concert Band is offered as an elective to all sixth, seventh and eighth graders based on previous musical training or experience. Students work on instrument technique, ensemble sight-reading, and presentation skills.
Concert Band is a performance-oriented activity. Each Concert Band performs in three major concerts and some special events. Musical challenges are provided which are appropriate to the development and ability levels of each group. The Frances C. Richmond School has three Grade Level Concert Bands: 6th Grade Band, 7th Grade Concert Band and 8th Grade Concert Band.
