Symphonic Band

Symphonic Band is for students who are interested in advanced instrumental music.  The Symphonic Band is made up of 7th and 8th grade students. 

All bands meet during zero hour before school at 7:00 AM daily.  The students perform in four school concerts a year, organizational contest and many students perform in solo and ensemble contest.  The band performs in at least one parade a year, the Mokena Memorial Day Parade, and may perform in others. All Students in Band are required to march in parades. Band students are offered a band trip on a rotating basis – at parent expense.

The band is supported by the Mokena Music Booster Association.  The Music Boosters is a separate organization that works closely with the school.  Parents are not required to join the music boosters but it is highly recommended. 

               The band provides some instruments but normally, the students are expected to provide their own instruments for band.  Students are required to purchase a music shirt for concerts as part of the required uniform for all performances. Students will be expected to wear black pants and shoes and socks for all performances.
