Program 1

Music Ensembles

The core of the program is the Concert Ensembles, in which the students are trained in the technique and artistry of music. Concert Ensembles include Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, Sailor Symphone, Chamber Orchestra and Percussion Ensembles.The Solo & Ensemble allows the students to take greater musical responsibility by learning a new music outside of the regular of the regular ensemble and becoming a larger portion of the overall music. Jazz is America's music and with the legacy of the Admirals at Sarasota High, it is important to the school and community that we continue to foster individual growth through the study of jazz literature and improvisation.

STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

"This is an opportunity for the children in the Sarasota High district to receive music training and have artisitc and community involvement in ways that would be otherwise unavailable. Many of the students in this area do not have the resources to pursue their interest in music otherwise. The program mentors and teaches these students throughout their high shcool years, providing direction, leadership and mentoring that helps them in turn achieve leadership positions in the organization during their junior and sentior years. It is an important after shcool educational, artisitic and community program that typically involves over 100 kids."
