About The Band

Our band program at Portal Middle High School has grown tremendously since Mr. Gleissner came to Portal. The number of students enrolled in the program has surged, the opportunities to perform have increased, and the level of musicianship has developed incrementally. 

There were 6 students in the Marching Band when Mr. Gleissner began. There are now 24 after 3 years. The complete program had , 3 years ago, 47 students from 6-12 grade. We now have 94 students. Our total number of students at the school is 431.

The school had one Marching Band and one Concert Band before Mr. Gleissner arrived. We now have a Beginning Band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Marching Band, Jazz Band, and many small ensembles including some singing groups. Portal Middle High School now also offers a Music Technology class.

Portal Middle High School has slowly worked ourselves up to where we have gone to local Pre-Festival Concerts where we were judged and given comments only. We hope to take the Symphonic Band and the Concert Band to a GMEA Large Group Evaluation this year for the School's first time ever.
