2006-07 Concert Ensembles

The Marcus High School Band currently has 4 concert ensembles: The Wind Symphony, The Symphonic Band, The Concert Band, and the Varsity Band. All bands prepare several concerts throughout the concert season, compete at Texas University Interscholastic League (UIL) Concert and Sight-Reading Contests, and send students to audition for All-Region Band. Several students each year advance to Area auditions, and eventually become part of one of the Texas All-State Bands or Orchestras, which perform during the Texas Music Educator's Association (TMEA) Conference in February of each year in San Antonio, Texas.
