Band is open to students in grades 5-12 by audition. Instrumentation normally includes a full rhythm section (piano/keyboard, guitar, bass, and percussion), and small numbers of woodwinds, brass, and strings. Smaller ensembles for specific pieces are often made from players in the full ensemble. Most students with instruments take private lessons at school during or after the school day. The band has ministered to others with contemporary worship arrangements, classical works, jazz stylings with improvisation, and traditional hymns.
