The Symphonic Band is a balanced ensemble of woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments. The Marquette Symphonic Band meets during the sixth hour of the school day, and is the middle ensemble in the Band Program and serves as a bridge between Concert Band and Wind Ensemble. The Symphonic band is comprised of students in grades 9 - 12 who are at a moderate level of performance on their instrument. The Marquette Symphonic band will perform 5-6 concerts per year, including the Missouri State Large Ensemble Festival in the spring semester.
Placements for the Symphonic band are held in February. Details about auditions will be given to students and all middle school band directors in mid-January.
