Curricular Concert Bands
The Evanston Township High School concert band program consists of three ability-based curricular concert bands. These ensembles meet as 42 minute classes during periods 4, 5, and 6 each day. Students audition for placement and seating in these ensembles at the end of each marking quarter.
Each September, all band students audition for placement and seating within three curricular concert bands at ETHS. Freshmen audition for chair placement only within the 4th Period Freshmen Concert Band, while Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors audition for placement and seating in either the intermediate Symphonic Band or the advanced Wind Symphony. This audition also serves as the foundation for placement in Symphony Orchestra as well as special opportunities such as nomination for the North Shore Honor Band.
