Instrumental Music

Sponsor: Mary Rose Biltz

Description: The Circle High School TBird band is an active organization throughout the community and within the school. In addition to performing at all home football and basketball games, students also preform at school concerts an d festivals. The spring semester activities include state music festival and regional and state solo and small ensemble festival.

Cost: Students will provide their own instruments except marching percussion and large school-owned instruments. Students will need to purchase a band shirt, marching shoes (approx. $30.00) and needed accesso- ries for their instrument throughout the year.

Membership Requirements: All students must be academically eligible according to KSHSAA standards to participate in music festivals. Students either new to the district or returning to band after an absence are required to pass an audition. Attendance is required at all extracurricular performances. Because the band attends a variety of festivals and contests throughout the year and the music selected is based on instrumentation, students must be in the group for the entire year.
