This first-level wind band draws experienced music students, primarily freshmen who studied at Joaquin Moraga Intermediate, Stanley Middle or other middle schools, but also older students who will benefit from the experience.
The advanced symphonic band includes winds, brass and percussion instrumentalists, primarily sophomores, juniors and seniors, although incoming freshmen may audition in the spring. This band plays high school and college level repertoire.
Campolindo’s string orchestra includes freshmen through seniors and performs high school and college level repertoire. Some repertoire, such as Beethoven’s symphonies, are performed with brass, wind and percussion musicians drawn from the symphonic band.
Entrance to Jazz Band is by audition only. In addition to concerts and competitions, the jazz band also performs at the annual Jazz Dinner Dance. For this year’s Jazz Dinner Dance information, click the Concert Dates tab.
This advanced placement course is open to any sophomore, junior or senior interested in music. It includes basic music theory and composing.
CONCERTS, MUSICALS, TOURS
Campolindo’s musicians perform at Campolindo’s Performing Arts Center (CPAC) for all concerts and in the orchestra pit for the spring musical.
AUDITIONING for incoming freshmen students
