Waco HS Band
About the Waco HS Band Program
Our Mission Statement....
To provide tomorrow's adults with an educational and life-long appreciation of the diverse styles in instrumental music. Through various performance opportunities, the Waco High Band program seeks to develop personal musical growth and character, as well as mental and physical discipline that results in a sense of pride and accomplishment for all of our students.
With an emphasis on quality, character, and attention to individual and ensemble musicianship, the Waco High Band balances Marching Band, Concert Bands, Jazz Bands and Combo's, Colorguard, Steel Band, and various small instrumental chamber ensembles to develop musical literacy and artistic values that can serve students their entire lives.
Students participate in structured and musically organized rehearsals that focus on quality tone production, which balances technical and artistic challenges appropriate to the capability levels of High School musicians in Texas and around the country. The Waco High School Band emphasizes quality musical literature choices, blending a mix of standard repertoire with original cutting edge compositions. Attendance and participation in all rehearsals and performances are paramount to insuring a quality experience for all of the bands at Waco High School.
The Marching Band is one of the most visible organizations on campus, and the "LION PRIDE" band enjoys strong community support, a supportive administration, and a highly involved Booster organization that is always looking for parental help.
Students will travel to some of the most famous and prestigious venues in the state of Texas while performing in, and attending some of the finest musical events in the Country. This helps to build a healthy respect for other musicians and also offers outstanding opportunities for personal musical development. The band and colorguad are actively competitive in several different circuits including TMEA, UIL, BOA, USBANDS, NTCA, and others.
All of these elements combine to make our students experience in the Waco High Band program one of the highlights of their academic career.
