About Our Program

The Frederick High School Bands Program currently has a symphonic band which has students split among a wind ensemble, concert band, marching band, and small ensembles.  We also offer two jazz bands, a percussion ensemble, and a color guard class.  There are over 120 students involved in the FHS Bands Program.

The Frederick Bands perform annually at the UNC Jazz Festival, the Legends Jazz Festival, St. Vrain Band Night, the Greeley Marching Invitational, four local parades, halftime performances, and four formal concerts.  They have performed at Walt Disney World and Branson, Missouri.
