Our Band practices for one period every day.
7th & 8th Grade
The 7th and 8th grade Bands perform four concerts yearly: a Fall Concert, a Winter Concert, a Pre-LGPE Concert and a Spring Concert. 7th and 8th grade Bands also attend LGPE (Large Group Performance Evaluation) in March. They also have the opportunity to perform on the Stars stage at Universal in Orlando, Florida, in May.
6th graders do not need to have any prior experience with playing a musical instrument. They will perform two concerts, one in December and one in May. 6th graders who are high-achievers may also be asked to perform with the other groups as needed.
SSCMS has an Honor Band which consists of 7th and 8th graders and students are invited by the director to participate. Honor Band plays two concerts in the rotunda and also performs at all Honor Roll assemblies and rising 6th grade tours. We also tour the elementary schools in the Spring to help with recruiting for the next year.
Instruments are available for rental on a first come, first served basis.
