Symphonic Band

The Millennium MS Symphonic Band is the Millennium's intermediate wind and percussion performing ensemble.  The group is made up of students that have completed at least one year of beginning band instruction.  While the group is primarily made up of 7th and 8th graders, advanced 6th graders have also been admitted to the ensemble via audition.

 

The Symphonic Band performs several times per school year.    Additionally, this group performs with the Seminole HS Band for one football game per season as well as combining to form a "mega band" for the Annual MLK Day Parade.

Students have the opportunity to perform at Florida Bandmasters Association events, such as Solo & Ensemble MPA and Concert Band MPA. (MPA stands for Music Performance Assessment and is like the "standardized test" for music students, except that it is based on performance rather than a written exam). Students routinely earn Excellent and Superior ratings these events.

Symphonic Band students are held to a high standard of musicianship.  At home practice is required, and private lessons are strongly encouraged.
