Dear Parents and Students,


Incoming freshman will be placed in Concert Band except for a handful of kids based off the instrumentation needs for Wind Ensemble and Symphonic Band.


Remember, all Wind Ensemble members must be in Marching Band (no exceptions). I allow certain exceptions for members of Symphonic Band and Concert Band, but they must be preapproved before the school year starts; I take each one on a case by case basis. I will work with a student’s schedule just as long as everything is communicated well in advance.


I look forward to a great year.




Mr. España

Director of Bands

John Burroughs High School
