The Concert Band is open to any band student with a minimum of one year playing experience. The ensemble is a mix of students from Gr. 9 to Gr. 12+ who rehearse every Thursday after school. The larger range of instruments affords this ensemble the opportunity to present very dramatic music to our audiences. Their massive, controlled sound is always a highlight of the OSSIA concerts.
Concert Band makes use of the following instruments: flute, oboe, bassoon, clarinet, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, trumpet french horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, percussion (including snare drum, mallet percussion, timpani, and auxilliary percussion).
Note: These rehearsal times are subject to change based on the particular needs of each ensemble. Advance warning will be given when a change rehearsal day/time is required.
In addition to the above extra-curricular ensembles, classes also form ensembles that have the opportunity to perform concerts throughout the year.
