Welcome to the Middle Creek High School Band

The Band program here at MCHS is made up of several band classes. In the fall the course offerings are Marching Band, Concert Band (10-12), and 9th grade Concert Band. In the spring the course offerings are an auditioned Symphonic Band (9-12), Concert Band (10-12), and 9th grade Concert Band. Music at the high school level builds on K-8 music experiences as a comprehensive, sequential, and discipline-based program. Students continue to broaden their respect for and understanding of music as an art form. Students examine the relationship of music to other content areas and the role and meaning of music in various social, cultural, and historical contexts (NC DPI).
