ENSEMBLES

GREEN HOPE BAND ENSEMBLES

The purpose of the Green Hope High School Band is to educate young people through performance. Students are motivated through teamwork, performance objectives, and evaluation to mature as a musician, a performer, a student, and a person. The curriculum is varied and cyclical in nature.

The Green Hope Band Program is comprised of five ensembles.

MARCHING BAND | SYMPHONC & CONCERT BAND | INDOOR PERCUSSION | JAZZ BAND | WINTER GUARD

MARCHING BAND

The Marching Band is the largest and most visible component of the Green Hope Band program. The more than 175 students who comprise the Green Hope High School Marching Band perform at home football games, community events, and local, regional, and national competitions.

SYMPHONIC & CONCERT BANDS

The curricular band programs are the core of the Green Hope Band. Students may enroll in one of these courses for academic credit. Classes are held during the school day. Necessary skills in music performance are developed, which can then be applied toward one of the extracurricular band ensembles.

Instruments in the Front Ensemble include Marimba, Vibraphone, Xylophone, Glock, Synthesizer, and Rack. The Drum Line consists of the Snare Line, Bass Line, Cymbal Line, and the Quad Line.
