Bands

Red Band

Tuesdays 3:40-4:45; Thursdays 5:00-6:00

This is one of the two grade nine bands available to students enrolled in AMI1O1. Each of the bands perform completely different music. The division occurs because there are too many grade nines for one band. The schedule is what determines your placement. (ie. They rehearse at different times so you can select the band that best fits your schedule). You may select to be in both bands but you will only get one credit. You must be taking AMI1O1 to be in this band but there are some exceptions pending discussions and approval by Mr. Horner.
