LSA BAND PROGRAMS
Students in the Band Program participate in the Marching Band during the first semester of the school year. The Band attends all football games and marches in various parades. Students attend Band Camp during the summer before school starts. The marching band rehearses after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
This course is intended to teach fundamentals of jazz and popular music styles. Students learn techniques of ensemble playing, improvisation, and the basics of music theory. The group performs at many local functions, including Opelika's popular Summer Swing concert series, and usually enters at least one competitive jazz festival. All members are selected by the band director.
This course is for those who have completed Beginning Band and are ready for more advanced musical training and performance.
This group performs at various concerts and also competes in festivals and competitions during the year. Students are held to high musical expectations and are expected to improve musically throughout the year. The LSA Concert Band has consistently scored Superior Ratings at MPA and AISA Contests as well as other national contests attended in the Spring.
