Our curricular groups include the WIND ENSEMBLE, which is a class that students are chosen for through the audition process, and the SYMPHONIC BAND, which is open to any student the plays a wind or percussion instrument. The STRING ORCHESTRA is open to any student that plays a string instrument (violin, viola, cello, string bass). The JAZZ ENSEMBLE(aka "Research in Music" class) is an auditioned group for saxes, trumpets, trombones, guitar, bass, and drums, and those auditions take place in late January.   Co-curricular options include, PIT ORCHESTRA,STRING ENSEMBLE, (chamber string group), LAB BAND(second jazz band),SMALL ENSEMBLES and our  WEST MARCHING BAND which plays at West home football games.  Click on the links above  to view their pages and get more information about these groups.
