Gilbert High School Concert Bands
Every band student at Gilbert High School performs in one of three concert bands: Concert Band, Symphonic Band, or Wind Ensemble. Each ensemble has its own class period, and performs in several concerts each year. Band students also have the option to join the Jazz Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, and Marching Band. Many band students participate in their mandatory concert band class along with one or more of these elective band ensembles.
Our Gilbert High School concert band musicians are known for their positive energy, relentless pursuit of performance excellence, strong scholastic commitments, involvement in most every club and sport offered at Gilbert High School, and high academic achievement.
