Concert Bands

The Rio Rico High School Band Program has two wind bands. Our Concert Band is our entry-level ensemble and performs intermediate literature. The Symphonic Band is a higher-level ensemble that performs advanced literature.

Both bands are comprised of musicians who have been playing in band with anywhere from 1 to 8 years of experience in the Elementary Bands, Middle School Bands, the RRHS Band, and elsewhere. The ensembles prepare and perform 4 public concerts each year, one in the fall, one for the holidays, one in preparation for the spring concert festival, and one for the end of the year. In addition to these concerts, the bands also perform at the ABODA Concert Festivals for ratings and feedback from expert judges.

These groups demonstrate their technical and musical achievements by rehearsing and performing top quality band literature from both the traditional and modern concert band repertoire. We welcome you to our next performance to hear these groups for yourself.
