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.
What about more advanced music students? Musicians who have played their instrument for at least a year can audition for our Concert Band. Concert Band members can audition for jazz band. Students must be in Concert Band to participate in Jazz Band. Auditions are held in August. Audition music will be available later this summer.
