At St. George’s School, over 400 students from Grades 6–12 participate in 7 Concert Bands. At the Junior School, the boys have their first experiences on clarinet and trumpet in Grade 5 music classes and then progress to form full ensembles in Grade 6 and 7.
At the Senior School, students progress from the Junior Concert Band (Grade 8), to the Intermediate Concert Band (Grade 9), and finally to the Senior Concert Band (Grades 10– 12).
As each group rehearses in separate classes, both sections (Day 1 / Day 2) of each grade, meet once a week for a mandatory ensemble rehearsal, which is held once a week during lunch hour. This is the most important time of the week as students learn how to perform as an ensemble.
