The Band program here at MCHS is made up of several band classes as
well as extracurricular activities..Our Symphonic band and auditioned
Wind Ensemble are both year long classes. In the Fall semester we also
offer an AP Music Theory class and in the Spring semester there is an
auditioned Jazz Combo class. Extracurricular activities include Marching
Band, Jazz Band, Winter Guard, and Pit Orchestra for the spring

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).
