The indoor band program consists of two or more ensembles that meet during the school day and perform at different concerts and festivals during the year. During 1st term these are Marching Band and Symphonic Band (non-marchers). During 2nd term these are Concert Band and Wind Ensemble. Concert Band may also be further divided into CB I and CB II depending on the number of students registered in a given semester and the teaching staff available.
Additionally, there are opportunities to perform in the Chamber Music Program, Percussion Ensemble, Jazz Ensemble and the Music Theatre pit orchestra. Some of these meet outside of normal class time.
Jazz Ensembles - Each year students in the Wakefield Bands are given the opportunity to participate in Jazz Ensemble activities. Student interest determines the amount of Jazz Ensemble activities that the WHS Bands support. Performances have included standard band concerts, WHS home basketball games, and other school functions.
