Concert Bands

  • The Marietta Concert Bands are the centerpiece of our program. The purpose of our bands is to perform wind literature at the highest level while developing the skills, knowledge and understanding of each individual musician. Here the students grow in individual and ensemble skills, musicianship, character, and excellence. The Marietta Concert Bands are made up of three level based ensembles: The Marietta Wind Ensemble, Symphonic Band, and Concert Band.
  • The Marietta Wind Ensemble: The Marietta Wind Ensemble is the most prestigious ensemble in the greater band program. Membership in the ensemble is audition based. The ensemble performs a Winter and Spring concert as well as grade 5 & 6 repertoire at Large Group Performance Evaluations (LGPE).
  • Symphonic Band: The Symphonic Band is an advanced level performing group. Membership in the symphonic band is also auditioned based. The ensemble performs a Winter and Spring concert as well as grade 3-5 repertoire at LGPE.
  • Concert Band: The Concert Band is an intermediate level performing group. Membership in the concert band is not strictly auditioned, but is offered to any musician with past ensemble experience.. The ensemble performs a Winter and Spring concert.
  • Beginning Band: Marietta is unique as it offers a semester long beginning band class to students who would like to learn a new instrument or missed the opportunity to start band in middle school.
