Portal Symphonic Band

The Symphonic Band is Portal High’s elite performance ensemble; as such, the class involves the most difficult and challenging literature – requiring advanced theoretical and pedagogical training.  The Symphonic Band is responsible for performing at all school functions requiring live music. Membership is open to high school students only.  Members are expected to practice daily, and are strongly encouraged to study privately with a local professional to further their musical endeavors. Participation in Solo & Ensemble Festival, District / All-State Band Auditions and honor band clinics is strongly encouraged.

 

Small Ensembles

Small and medium-sized groups of similar instruments may be formed for special-needs performances throughout the year.  These ensembles may participate in the Annual Solo & Ensemble Festival held in the spring.  Groups meet strictly outside of school hours, and are open to all members.  Examples of possible groups are: Brass Choir, Woodwind Quintet, Clarinet Choir, Percussion Ensemble, and Jazz Combos.
