Elemental Band is our intermediate full concert band. 

Wind, brass, and percussion students in grades 3–5 get the unique opportunity to play exciting music in a wide variety of styles with a full concert band. Elemental Band students improve their musical skills every week in both full band rehearsals and instrument-specific sectionals with professional instrumentalists. This is an audition-based ensemble with auditions in the spring for the upcoming school year.

Students gain tremendous confidence and maturity from playing with a large ensemble, preparing them for participation in the wonderful middle school bands in our community!
