E.F. Green Junior
About The Bands
E.F. Green’s premier performing ensemble. This is a group of mostly 8th graders and some outstanding 7th graders. The group rehearses daily and also meets regularly after and/or before school. This ensemble is the most visible in the community, performing at football games in conjunction with the Symphonic band, performs at community events, and also competes in TMEA and UIL competitions..
The second performing ensemble at E.F. Green. The group is comprised mostly of 7th graders. The Symphonic band combines with the Wind Ensemble during the fall for football season and then carries its own schedule for the remainder of the year including afterschool rehearsals. Because of the possibility of promotion to the Wind Ensemble, students are encouraged to participate in TMEA auditions in addition to competing in UIL events.
This ensemble is the third performing band here at E.F. Green. Students in this band hone their skills to be promoted up to the Symphonic band. This group performs on all public concerts.
All percussionist are required to be in this class during the school year. We employ a wide variety of percussion only literature including large ensemble and drumline and are able to focus on percussion technic while supplying players for each of the other performing ensembles on their concerts and competitions.
