The HCS Band Program seeks to develop student musicians who grow in personal discipline and skill, perform quality music with the ensemble, develop meaningful relationships, and use their musical abilities to bring glory to our Father in Heaven.

Concert Ensemble is open, by audition, to anyone who has studied their instrument for at least one year, but preferably two.
Jazz Band is open, by audition, to Concert Band members. Students must be in Concert Band to participate in Jazz Band.
